Why study Bachelor of Arts (Global) and Bachelor of Science?

This double degree requires you to not just think globally but study globally as well. Overseas travel is a compulsory part of the course, which connects you with internationally recognised scholars and world-class facilities.

Flexibility is king with this program, which has an enormous breadth of study choice built into the science degree and a huge range of study options on offer from the 'faculty without borders' that is Arts.

Offered only at Monash Clayton, you get to choose your majors from 21 science and 16 broad arts areas of study. This choice allows you to design a unique course, which could see you combining atmospheric science with international studies, alongside sustainability, environment and society, and complementing your choice with minors in ecology and conservation biology and communications.

Within the Bachelor of Arts (Global) component, you'll complete an international studies major and a complementary minor - think languages, politics or cultural studies.

You must study at least one semester and up to three semesters overseas. Study opportunities exist at more than 100 partner universities around the world, as well as our international campuses in Malaysia and South Africa, giving you an exciting opportunity to expand your horizons and career possibilities.

The science component offers flexibility of choice and a broad science education with specialist training in one or more science areas, selected from 35 different major sequences. This flexibility allows you to explore new areas, further develop your strengths and pursue your own interests.

The course offers practical employment skills, including numeracy, data analysis, information literacy, problem solving, communication and presentation skills, and the ability to work in teams. It's a versatile course that will prepare you for life after study and equip you with a truly unique set of skills and experiences.
