Bachelor of International Studies
A global career with endless opportunities. Study the only program in Australia that includes language training, an international studies major and a semester abroad.
The Bachelor of International Studies is focused on developing language skills and knowledge of global issues from the perspective of relevant social science disciplines.
The program consists of three components: core studies, a language major and an international studies major. You'll complement these studies with a compulsory overseas exchange semester to enhance the development of your cross-cultural understanding and communication skills.
You can choose from a comprehensive range of courses, all of which provide grounding in the political, social and communicative aspects of international and global issues.
Your semester abroad gives you the opportunity to experience living, studying and maybe even travelling in another country. A great experience, but also something that demonstrates to future employers that you’re able to function well outside your comfort zone. Combining this semester abroad with your language also allows you to ‘bed down’ that language and move a step closer to fluency. Whether ordering fresh croissants from a boulangerie in Paris, a plate of empanadas from a café in Buenos Aires or a bowl of kimchi in Seoul, your exchange semester abroad will be an unforgettable experience.
- Finish your degree fluent in a second language, with a sophisticated knowledge of things international and with the experience of living abroad.
- Benefit from a truly international experience, with an overseas exchange semester at one of UQ’s many prestigious international partner institutions.
- Choose from Queensland’s largest selection of language majors.
- Select study options that provide context to transnational issues and global understanding.
Tailor your studies to suit your goals. This program offers these options:
- Chinese Translation and Interpreting
- International History
- International Inequality and Development
- International Relations
Situated on 114 hectares of Brisbane River-bound land, UQ’s main campus is a vibrant mix of majestic sandstone buildings and contemporary architecture, landscaped gardens and lakes. Fanning out from the heritage-listed Great Court, you’ll find modern teaching and research facilities, including laboratories, lecture theatres, and Queensland’s largest research library. The expansive grounds are also home to a variety of sporting facilities, museums, cafes, and those famous Jacaranda trees. The St Lucia campus is only seven kilometres from Brisbane’s city centre, making it an appealing place to study, work or visit.
