Bachelor of International and Global Studies (Honours)
University of Sydney, Australia
The Bachelor of International and Global Studies (Honours) is an intensive year-long program of advanced study with research at its centre. Students take seminar classes and research and write a substantial thesis on a topic they work out in collaboration with a supervisor who is a specialist in the relevant field.
Where the pass degrees give students the opportunity to explore a range of fields and concentrate on one or two areas (the majors), the honours year enables students to engage with the subject of their major in depth and learn how to practise its methods by undertaking research of their own.
This course may be suitable for undergraduate students with one major.
The Honours year is both a preparation for postgraduate study and a capstone to an undergraduate degree. For some students, honours is the culmination of their formal education, an experience that extends their intellectual range, hones their abilities in research, analysis, and communication, and helps them develop the body of personal and professional skills needed to see a major project though to completion. For other students, honours is the first step on the path to careers as professional researchers and academics.

Bachelor of International Studies
University of New England, Australia
When you embark on a Bachelor of International Studies, you’ll examine an array of fascinating topics, such as global security, earth in crisis, human rights and refugees, cross-cultural communication, trade, the rise of China and Australia's relations with the US, Asia and the Pacific Islands.
You can pursue your interests by choosing two of these majors:
- Global Politics and Peace – You will engage with the most challenging issues of the 21st century, from the 9/11 attacks signalling the age of globalised terrorism, tackling civil war via conflict resolution, weathering the Global Financial Crisis, Brexit's impact on European regionalism, populist trends undermining democracy, to the implications of China's rising power, Trump's presidency, and the COVID-19 pandemic for international relations.
- International Law – This major allows you to examine topics of global significance including the development of treaties, navigating trade wars, human rights advocacy at the United Nations; wildlife trafficking; global governance of water, mining, fisheries and forests; maritime security notably the South China sea dispute; and combating the nefarious underworld of transnational crime.
- Languages and Cultures – You can pursue a language and its culture to an advanced level (Chinese, Classical Languages, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese or Spanish). This typically includes an exploration of that country’s history, literature and film, as well as the option of an in-country language unit.
- Societies – You will examine an eclectic mix of topics, from communications and literature, to geography, indigenous and peace studies, sociology and studies in religion. The concerns in this major will ultimately determine the future of humanity such as the clash of civilisations, mitigating climate change, food insecurity and natural disasters, as well as managing the world refugee crisis and the diabolical challenges posed by megacities.
All students have the option of an exchange trimester overseas, studying at one of UNE's partner universities in North America, Europe or Asia. This gives you valuable in-country experience that is highly regarded by employers.
