About this course

The dual degree provides students with an understanding of the business environment and its relevance to the international hotel and tourism industry. This training is complemented by the studies of society and culture and analytical and communication skills offered in the Bachelor of Arts.

When this program is studied at a standard load of four courses per semester, the final semester will comprise part-time study of only two courses. Students may decide to overload in previous semesters or undertake study in a summer semester to reduce the total duration of the program

Sociologists analyse social change and investigate patterns of social behaviour. They use critical and analytical skills to discover the causes and consequences of social problems, to establish future directions of change, and to interpret the reasons for gender, ethnic, racial and class inequalities that have occurred in the past and are occurring in the present. Sociological study provides students with the intellectual tools to analyse and to build evidence-based findings on the pressing issues of our time. The Sociology major at UQ uncovers the heart of the disciplines underlying interest in inequality, power, cultural identity and the future of global society.
