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.
The International Relations major is usually offered as part of a Bachelor of Arts, however when combined with the Business Law major it can be completed as a Bachelor of Commerce instead. 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.

Fees for Australian and New Zealand students
What is a Commonwealth supported place (CSP)? -
A CSP is subsidised by the Australian Government. They pay part of the course fees directly to Curtin and then the
student pays the remainder. The student can defer this fee to their HECS-HELP loan.
All Australian students studying an undergraduate degree are automatically awarded a Commonwealth supported place.
Learn more about CSPs and whether you're eligible by visiting the Australian Government's StudyAssist website.
Fees are indicative first year only and are subject to passage of legislation.
*The indicative first-year fee is calculated on 200 credit points, which is the typical full-time study load per year, however some courses require additional study to be completed, in which case the fee will be higher than that shown.
This fee is a guide only. It may vary depending on the units you choose and do not include incidental fees (such as lab coats or art supplies) or the cost of your textbooks - visit other fees and charges for more information. For more information on fees and to determine your eligibility for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP, please visit fee basics or the Study Assist website
