What will I learn?

International Relations is a developing and dynamic field that aims to study and solve some of the world's major problems such as war, inequality, climate change, poverty, hunger. A Bachelor of International Studies (International Relations) focuses on understanding your place in the national and global political systems, as well as appreciating the historical evolution of global politics. Many graduates progress to careers in global organisations and businesses that are focused beyond Australia's borders.

The Bachelor of International Studies examines the relationships of politics, society, culture, language, and history in a range of countries. You will analyse national and current global issues, focusing on the way global forces and interactions increasingly influence domestic politics. You will also be encouraged to study abroad or undertake a study tour.

What you will study
You will undertake core subjects on global politics, international security, negotiation and conflict management, and on the role of the state in the new millennium.
