This degree covers all aspects of political, cultural and economic relations at both the domestic and international levels. It explores the world-shaping political forces that extend far beyond national boundaries and impact our lives in unexpected ways.
You will engage with contemporary issues such as the Syrian War, nuclear proliferation, the global refugee crisis, the crisis in the international political economy, the implications of Brexit, and what the election of President Trump means for the world, Australia, and you.
You will graduate with a double major in Politics and International Relations, which you complete in the first three years of the degree, and work with a team of leading academics and researchers to identify and evaluate current affairs and issues that shape global politics.
Fourth year focuses entirely on the practical study of Politics and International Relations. You can complete advanced coursework and a substantial project or undertake a dedicated internship program to gain first-hand experience in real-life projects with one of our partner organisations.
