Bachelor of International Relations

Bond University

The Bachelor of International Relations aims to prepare students for a career in a globalised economy. Global and regional interdependence means that no nation - least of all Australia - is unaffected by developments beyond its borders. National survival is now based on international orientation; businesses, governments and organisations need people equipped not only with relevant professional skills, but also with competencies in international relations.
