Bachelor of Politics and International Relations/ Bachelor of Business - SCMG01

Discover the principles, concepts and issues that are shaping our world and combine these with the core disciplines of business and management to open an exciting and challenging future involving international politics, national security, business and innovation.

UC’s Bachelor of Politics and International Relations/Bachelor of Business double degree will cover a range of topics designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and strategies behind business and politics around the world – and then explore how issues such as Brexit, the Trump presidency, war, energy security and marriage equality and how they have the potential to influence change on a global scale.

The course will also teach you how to develop high level theoretical and empirical analysis and interpretation skills and use these to academically critique international issues, such as democratically informed citizenship, contemporary issues in politics and policy, national security, the challenges of modern terrorism, and contemporary regional politics in the Asia Pacific in an international context.

Based in Canberra, the centre of political influence in Australia, this course will also give you unrivalled access to a network of professional and government contacts, practical exposure and the opportunity to study real-world situations through project work, internships and mentorships.
