Bachelor of International Studies
University of New England - Armidale

Course outline

The term ‘global village’ may have become a cliché but it’s true that the world has never felt smaller. Globalisation has seen many countries become increasingly dependent on each other, with the effects of internal politics, foreign policy and diplomacy impacting nations and individuals worldwide. With such a backdrop, the ability to make sense of it all and assess the issues that affect nations across the political, economic, social, environmental and cultural spectrum is a highly valued skill.

This course gives you the opportunity to specialise in areas such as human futures and global challenges, international law, global politics and peace, international business, and an Asian, European or classical language. You will also have the option to study overseas. Available for study fully online, as well as on campus, the degree will equip you with transferable intercultural skills that are highly valued in today’s globalised job market.
