Information for Current Students

  • Version 1 - Start Date: 01/01/2019 End Date: Current Version


The core proposed for this degree provides a foundation for students in social sciences. The degree engages students by exposing them to the composite disciplines at the nexus of business and government. Students are required to undertake studies in key themes and issues in sociology, economics, politics and government, and skills relating to research in government and policy to ensure they have a basic understanding and foundation in social science disciplines to further their abilities as they progress and specialise in sociology and economic policy. Through the provision of an 8 unit-strong core with elements common across the School of Government & Policy, the proposed core structure encourages the emergence of strong student cohort effects. Five units of the core will be taught in first year, followed in the 2nd and 3rd years by Professional Practice 1, Professional Practice 2 and Professional Evidence (Government and Policy). The proposed shared core will facilitate networking, inclusion, and peer effects among graduates of the proposed degree.
