Introduction

This combined degree offers an outstanding opportunity for students who are interested in working as managers in international contexts.

The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies degree gives students the opportunity to attain intercultural understandings and develop conceptual knowledge of international issues. International Studies investigate the interplay of cultural, political and economic forces in the regional and global arena. A highly recommended international exchange semester provides first-hand international experience.

The Bachelor of Management is designed for those who are making, or who plan to make, their careers in management in the business, public and non-governmental sectors. It is suitable both for those who have recently completed secondary studies and for those with some work experience. The course combines conceptual understanding and a practical orientation in Management, with majors in Government and Politics, and Management, Governance and Policy.

Students who wish to take out a single degree in the BA International Studies only will be able to do so upon completion of the academic requirements for that degree. To ensure the single degree course can be completed in the minimum time of six semesters for a single degree, students must seek the advice of the course convener during the first year of their study.
