Politics and International Studies

The Politics and International Studies Major will pique your interest if you are actively participating in shaping the local and global forces that affect political institutions and their policies. It will enable you to take up effective roles in local, state, national and international political institutions by developing an understanding of real-world political and policy issues, and encouraging you to apply your knowledge and skill sets to it.

The programme can be completed in 16-24 months instead of 28-36 months. Applicants with a Polytechnic Diploma may be exempted from up to 12 units and can gain entry to Year 2 of the programme.
