2016 Study Plans

POLITICS AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

Politics and international relations gives students an opportunity to explore structures of power in both domestic and international relations. Our specialisms include Australian and comparative politics, regional and global relations, public policy, history, and international relations and security theory. We place an emphasis on traditional and contemporary challenges that occupy the national and international agenda, including human rights, international violence and insecurity, and political change.

HISTORY

The study of History is foundational to our understanding of contemporary issues. At Swinburne University history exposes students to the historical antecedents of contemporary problems. These include themes of war and peace, colonialism, gender, media, political, and radical history. These areas of study provide students with a unique platform to research, engage, and challenge traditional ideas and practices, while developing critical skills in understanding how history is both made and written.

INTERNATIONAL STUDIES

International Studies exposes students to a wide range of subjects to create a core awareness of global issues and relations. Major study areas include politics, international relations and security studies, history, sociology, and philosophy. Equal emphasis is placed on the historical antecedents and contemporary challenges in international relations. Students are therefore well equipped to debate the sources of, and possible solutions to, global problems, including security issues, inequality, humanitarian concerns, and climate change. Students can choose to add a language specialty to their studies (Chinese, Italian, and Japanese).
