What will I learn?

Discover a world of global connections

A mix of sociology, history, sustainability and law, this program is designed to help you navigate the contemporary world order, covering studies in international justice, human rights, global environmental politics, media, and international security.

You’ll develop an in-depth understanding of the political, cultural, and economic systems of other countries, with a focus on the United States and the Asia-Pacific region. You’ll become familiar with international institutions and the structures of global governance and examine the relationship between the media and politics. You can also choose to complete an internship in a political setting (such as with state and federal politicians, Amnesty International, local councils or community organisations), giving you practical experience and industry connections.

In this program you will:

  • Learn the fundamentals of public international law and international human rights law
  • Intern with politicians or social welfare organisations
  • Use your elective courses to specialise in a chosen area of interest
  • Develop strong communication skills as you research and present arguments on international politics
  • Have the opportunity to study overseas
