The Bachelor of Laws degree provides a gateway to a rewarding career in Law and can provide a strong foundation for other career opportunities. This degree will prepare you to work as a lawyer in a private practice, in government, as corporate counsel or in a not-for-profit organisation. The Bachelor of Behavioural Science is a unique trans-disciplinary social science based on a foundation of critical psychology, political science, cultural studies and sociology. Integrating specialised knowledge developed in these social science disciplines, and with a strong focus on critical psychology, means that the degree provides the nexus between understandings and practices of traditional psychology and social work. Students develop an understanding of their place and role in society as well as respect for social and cultural diversity. Embedded within the degree is a specific emphasis on the assumptions and practices that promote substantive reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.Students are encouraged to incorporate political, economic, cultural and other social influences that promote or obstruct human behaviour. They learn to analyse the individual, group, and societal levels to examine how people respond to the various situations they experience; this includes the influences that institutions and systems have on people. Graduates work with those who may be experiencing marginalisation to develop and support social justice based on empowerment and liberation. They critically evaluate information and apply professional reflexive practice to any career that requires analysis and interpretation of human behaviour to promote wellbeing.
