About this course

This dual degree program allows students to combine studies in the unique and innovative Bachelor of Social Science program with a wide range of majors in the arts. For example, foreign language studies can be combined with a major in Development. The Bachelor of Social Science teaches students how to develop strategies to help find solutions to a range of social issues at the local, national and international level.

Japanese is a key world language used to facilitate economic pursuits, research and government interaction. It is particularly useful if students are seeking a career in business, tourism, technology, the media, art, literature or education. Learning to use Japanese broadens the scope of their personal, social and professional networks giving students the potential to travel, live and work in Japan and to engage with speakers of Japanese in Australia, Japan and elsewhere. More than 20 exchange programs with prestigious Japanese universities are available to allow students to advance their linguistic skills and cultural understanding through in-country experience.
