Share

Why study Bachelor of Arts (Global)?

In this course, you don't just study global culture, you experience it. Overseas travel is a compulsory part of the degree. Through your international studies major you'll spend at least one and up to three semesters abroad. You can travel between our international campuses, or to an approved partner university anywhere in the world.

You'll study the history of the 20th century before moving on to the issues of the 21st century. We focus on the effects of globalisation and integration, including the benefits (better and cheaper goods and services, better health, increased tolerance) and the downside (environmental destruction, the resurgence of aggressive nationalism, racism).

We offer this course at our Clayton and Caulfield campuses in Australia, and Monash University Malaysia. You'll take an international studies major, a minor, one core global research unit and extra units of your choice.

Each campus has a tailored selection of subjects to choose from. Studying at Monash in Clayton or Caulfield mean you could choose anything from bioethics to Chinese translation (there are more than 50 study areas to choose from). At Monash University Malaysia, you could prepare yourself for reporting on the world stage by studying writing or journalism.

And if opportunities (like jobs, internships or travel) arise, you can also take up to two semesters by off-campus learning.

Study areas

COMMUNICATIONS

Communications focuses on the role of media in society and how this influences the way we receive communications and the way we communicate with each other. Today, we get most of our news and knowledge from mass media and social media, so it is vital that students learn about the structures of communications industries and how to critically analyse the media.

INTERNATIONAL STUDIES

As the world globalises and nations and economies become more integrated, understanding our world and the ideas and beliefs of our neighbours is vital. International studies criss-crosses history, politics, international relations, sociology and economics. It starts by looking at the history of the 20th century and then moves to the issues facing our world as we move into the 21st century. Students can also pursue studies in one of two streams: Asian studies; European studies.

JOURNALISM

Our journalism program is the largest undergraduate journalism program in Australia. Our students are taught by real journalists. Through a combination of academic and practice-based work, students gain a solid foundation in all production technologies - print, video, radio and online - in metropolitan, regional and international contexts.

PSYCHOLOGY

Psychology draws on a range of phenomena including remembering and forgetting, thinking, learning, problem solving, how we communicate, our emotions, and our social interactions. It allows us to examine how we respond to the world around us, providing valuable insights in how we can interact with the world more effectively and safely.

WRITING

Writing at Monash offers students the opportunity to understand a range of writing practices and to become familiar with different kinds of writing and language use for different audiences and purposes. Students gain a detailed understanding of the range of techniques used in contemporary writing practice, and graduate with valuable analytical, editorial and creative skills, applicable to a variety of careers.

  • Career opportunities

    As the world economy becomes more internationalised, employers are increasingly looking for graduates who are mobile, interculturally aware and have skills in a language other than English. With your expertise in international studies, you'll be equipped for a global career with a knowledge of world history, current affairs and an insight into the political underpinnings that affect the way organisations work.

    Graduates can enter a wide range of established and emerging fields including:

    • foreign affairs
    • immigration
    • journalism, media and broadcasting
    • intelligence
    • employment placement and recruitment services
    • banking
    • policy analysis
    • non-government organisations
    • community organisations
    • multilateral and intergovernmental organisations
    • manufacturing and commercial companies
    • trade
    • enterprise
    • customs
    • government departments, agencies and ministries who are responsible for implementing policy and research.

    We help students connect with employers, find jobs and explore career options.
