Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00113B

Gain a deep understanding of the political forces that shape the world, while graduating with two versatile degrees that set you up for a global career. You will major in international relations (IR) as part of your arts degree, then enhance your career options by choosing a complementary major and electives from the 36 disciplines on offer. In the masters component, you’ll explore global governance and the United Nations, IR theory, international politics and security and strategy. Boost your employability and broaden your horizons through international experience opportunities. Working alongside leaders from diverse cultures will allow you to see international relations from a unique perspective – an important skill for your career and your life. Challenge perceptions, test theories and discover solutions to the relationship challenges between countries with the Bachelor of Arts/Master of International Relations. When completing your masters degree, choose a specialisation within IR and complete a research project that puts into practice all that you’ve learnt throughout your studies. Your specialisation allows you to delve into any aspect of IR and become a subject matter expert in your field. Choose to specialise in: conflict and security; diplomacy and activism; or human rights and international law. There’s no better way to learn about IR than by gaining hands-on international experience. As leaders in mobility, we work with you to tailor your international experience depending on your study major or geographic interest around the world. You can even apply your knowledge to real-world scenarios by gaining professional experience through an internship. Spend time immersing yourself in organisations including NGOs, agencies and private sector corporations and arm yourself with skills that prepare you for the industry.
