Course overview

Get ready for a global career

Understand the processes by which law is created, changed and applied to business and government. You'll be provided with significant knowledge in the basics of business law such as torts, real property, trusts, trade practices and ethical issues in business practice. In International Relations you’ll look at current issues facing national security, inter-governmental politics, foreign policy and international strategy.

This major combination can be taken as either a Bachelor of Commerce or a Bachelor of Arts. If you enrol in the Bachelor of Commerce you will gain broad business knowledge through your first year by completing common core business units. These units provide an introduction to the various aspects of business.

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
