() Bachelor of Arts (Politics & Journalism) / Behavioural Science
February | July
Employers want the skills you will develop in this double degree. The ability to research, analyse, interpret, draw conclusions and problem-solve is needed in the flexible workplace of the 21st century.
The Bachelor of Arts (Politics & Journalism) combines two disciplines into a single program of study. In addition to studying Australian and international politics and international relations, you will receive a solid grounding in journalism’s diverse theories and practices, including your legal and ethical obligations. You will gain practical experience in various forms of journalism, including print, broadcast and online.
Your knowledge will be enhanced by completing a History course that provides an invaluable overview of the development of western society from the ancient world to the present. As the course description says, you will consider ‘the politics and construction of western history, the use of evidence and sources by historians and the skills and practice of history itself.’ A Business course, Introduction to Public Relations, expands your capacity to communicate effectively with various audiences.
The Bachelor of Behavioural Science is a unique program that combines elements of psychology, political science, cultural studies and sociology. Integrating specialised knowledge developed in these social science disciplines and with a strong focus on critical psychology, the program forges a connection between traditional psychology and social work.
As a graduate, you will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to work with those who may be experiencing marginalisation or disadvantage. As part of Behavioural Science, you will complete an internship which offers you the chance to apply your theoretical knowledge and learn much more in a professional workplace.
