Commerce and Global Studies - B2006

Commerce and Global Studies

Bachelor degree/Bachelor degree

This exciting double degree course gives you the opportunity to explore global cultures, learn the intricacies of global economies, develop your leadership skills and combine your studies with overseas travel.

Studying both Commerce and Global Studies will enable you to explore from a multidisciplinary perspective how economic, political, social and technological decisions are made across the world.

You will learn about the challenges facing all cultures and communities, such as peace and conflict; the rich-poor gap; and crime and justice, and be able to combine these with an understanding of the commercial realities all countries face.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Commerce, and
  • the Bachelor of Global Studies.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.

While your career options will depend on Commerce majors and the Global Studies specialisation that you choose, the double degree course will open up a diverse range of opportunities. Our graduates can be found in a range of domestic and international roles within governments, not-for-profit organisations and corporations that focus on international trade.

Wherever your choices may lead, a degree in Commerce and another in Global Studies will give you versatile and transferable skills that are relevant to any industry. You will acquire the skills that employers are looking for, such as communication, teamwork, research, critical thinking and cultural sensitivity - and you'll be able to draw on cross disciplinary perspectives to thrive in a broad range of settings.

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.

The Bachelor of Commerce is a comprehensive course, structured in three equal parts. In the double degree course you complete:

A. Commerce specified study

This will provide you with a broad foundation for your study of commerce and expose you to several commerce disciplines. This will contribute breadth to your knowledge of commerce and address the graduate course outcomes. It will also give you the opportunity to learn more about each discipline before finalising your choice of major.

B. Commerce listed major

This will provide you with a focused program of study that will develop your expertise in one discipline area. You will develop, apply and communicate an advanced level of understanding of the concepts and theoretical frameworks that constitute the knowledge base of your major area of study.

The Bachelor of Global Studies course is a specialiast course that develops through two themes, which will provide you with interdisciplinary approaches to addressing the key challenges facing the global community and in-depth expertise in your specialised area of study to enable you to effect change.

A. Leadership, culture and globalisation

You will compare and contrast a range of solutions in different historical, linguistic, cultural, and geographical settings, focussing especially on developing an understanding of effective leadership across a range of contexts to formulate practical and innovative approaches to global challenges.

B. Global studies specialist knowledge

These units will provide in-depth knowledge of the specific facet of global studies that comprises your specialisation, providing you with the practical and theoretical skills and knowledge needed to critically analyse, communicate and apply your disciplinary knowledge.
