Course Description

How can we conceptualise the most important challenges confronting our global communities, devise new and innovative solutions to these challenges, and communicate the solutions effectively? The Bachelor of Global Studies course has been designed for students who seek to be leaders in applying their knowledge to these global challenges.

The course aims to develop leadership for social change focussing on key capabilities: creativity, teamwork, cross-cultural collaboration, critical thinking, self-learning, analytical writing skills. We seek to cultivate a rich understanding of the interplay of local, regional and global forces and equip you with sharp analytical abilities and flexible, imaginative and well-informed disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches. All core units will enable you to apply your learning in practical and professional 'real life' contexts.

A key component of the course is a required period of study overseas that can be completed intensively at a Monash international campus or at a prestigious partner university.
