This course builds on the broad teaching and learning objectives of the Bachelor of Arts while developing a specialised focus on studies within an international framework. Students are able to explore and develop their knowledge and studies of the humanities through completing a compulsory international studies major sequence and undertaking studies on off-shore campuses as well as via flexible delivery mode. Students can undertake studies in related areas, including the various language programs offered by the Faculty of Arts.
