Science and Global Studies - S2003

This course is designed for students who aspire to be leaders in creating social change. Combining global studies with studies in fundamental science will give you the skill set to understand the complex challenges facing cultures and communities around the world and the opportunity to apply your knowledge to affect change. Through this combination, you will not just think globally but study globally as well with overseas travel a requirement of the course.

With four global studies specialisations (International studies, International relations, Human rights or Cultural competence - including a language) and a comprehensive range of science majors, flexibility is king with this program.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

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

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Global Studies) and be fully equipped to pursue a career drawing on either degree separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.

This flexibility of choice allows you to explore new areas, utilise your critical thinking and analytical skills, further develop your strengths and pursue your own interests. Core units focusing on leadership development, a broad range of multidisciplinary electives and the overseas study component underpin a focus on the practical application of knowledge and skills to real life scenarios.

With this versatile double degree course you'll improve your life and employment opportunities. It offers practical employment skills, including a high level of numeracy, data analysis, information literacy, problem solving, communication and presentation skills, and the ability to work in teams.

The international perspective and highly developed scientific skills you'll gain will help shape careers in international relations or trade, foreign affairs, diplomacy, politics and government, environmental research and planning and international not-for-profit organisations, as well as in traditional and emerging areas of science.
