Bachelor of Development Studies
Development, poverty, inequality and environmental sustainability are some of the most important issues in the world today. Studying and understanding these issues is the key to creating a better world for future generations.
The University of Newcastle's Bachelor of Development Studies deals with these key issues in a current and global context. You will focus on key global issues in a local, national or international context. You could find yourself employed for the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, helping developing countries address their internal constraints to trade, or more locally you could work with an Indigenous community to interpret cultural messages on environmental sustainability.
No matter your focus, when you study a degree in development studies you will go on to make a positive difference in the world.
