Delivered online, the Bachelor of Social Science gives students a broad understanding of social science in the context of a culturally diverse global environment. Students can choose from the major study areas of criminology, security and international relations, security and counter terrorism, or behavioural studies, equipping them for diverse careers in areas such as child protection, crime prevention, national security, government and foreign affairs.
Exploring topics such as human behaviour, social issues, ethical dilemmas and international relations, students will develop a rounded understanding of sociocultural and socioeconomic environments. Critical thinking skills will be honed through the analysis of theoretical principles and the reviewal of research, and graduates will display confidence in communicating ideas and arguments in their chosen disciplines.
