Level of study: Undergraduate


Learn how to critically analyse global challenges facing communities around the world, while exploring a broad range of areas in IT including cybersecurity and game developing. You could be designing a game for social change or building an app that connects societies.

Design a game for social change or develop a cybersecurity system that supports a non-profit across the world. Combining your international communication skills with the technical expertise to shape and manage current and emerging technologies, you’ll have the background and understanding to work with NGOs and big business alike with this highly practical double degree.

In this course, you’ll learn how the application of computer-based technologies meets individual and organisational information needs, while developing communication across cultural borders and formulating innovative solutions for social change.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

Bachelor of Global Studies
Bachelor of Information Technology

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Global Studies/Bachelor of Information Technology) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field or a combination of both. The Bachelor of Global Studies course focus on key capabilities: creativity, teamwork, cross-cultural collaboration, critical thinking, self-learning, analytical writing skills. Cultivate a rich understanding of the interplay of local, regional and global forces and equip yourself with sharp analytical abilities and flexible, imaginative and well-informed approaches. With Global Studies you can specialise in cultural competence, international relations, international studies or human rights. The Bachelor of Information Technology will enable you to gain the knowledge and skills needed to use IT effectively and to develop and manage IT-based systems. The course covers a wide range of aspects of IT – from technical computing, games and multimedia, to business information needs and the way in which IT can be used to support them.

Integral to the double degree is a compulsory overseas study component and you have a huge range of countries and international opportunities to choose from through the Global Immersion Guarantee, study tours, or by studying at one of our prestigious partner universities. Between overseas experiences and professional placement programs, with core units focusing on leadership development and IT practical and analytical skills, you will be prepared for an international career working with businesses, NGOs, government and industry.
