Bachelor of International Relations with Bachelor of Media
Why combine International Relations with Media?
International relations is about understanding “big picture” themes like trade, governance and human rights. Media professionals, meanwhile, strive to engage the public with these critical matters.
On completion of this double degree, you’ll be uniquely placed to pursue a range of influential careers—from political journalism to government and public relations roles.
What will you do?
- Explore global challenges and foreign policy in depth.
- Build skills in digital and interactive media, writing, research, reporting, radio and video production.
- Pursue foreign language electives to boost your employability.
- Get industry experience with major media networks and outlets.
