Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of International Studies

Western Sydney University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00917K; 02851G (WS, The College)

This double degree program is designed for students who want to combine their interest and expertise in science with a sophisticated understanding of international issues and systems. This will equip them to work in globalised science-based professions and industries. In the Science area, students can design their own academic program within the Bachelor of Science course structure, which must include a science Major. This will be combined with a degree in International Studies that examines the relationships of societies, cultures, languages and systems of government within the international system. It develops students' capacity to analyse the historical development of relations among nation states and contemporary political, social and cultural issues, such as globalisation, transnationalism and migration. Students complete a major in International Relations and Asian Studies, and a sub-major in any Asian language, Arabic, Chinese, Indonesian, or Japanese.
