Be a change maker
- Why is there global inequality? Why are some countries poor, or struggling with conflict, while others forge ahead?
- Our Bachelor of International Development equips you to tackle these and other big questions surrounding the world’s greatest political, economic, cultural and ecological challenges.
What will you do
We’ll support you in developing the skills, knowledge and attributes needed to make a real and positive difference in the lives of others. You will:
- examine how government, business, non-governmental organisations and individuals influence development
- learn how development groups function and make money
- explore the major contributing factors leading to issues such as extreme poverty, poor health, fragile governance, inequality and environmental vulnerability
- analyse possible solutions to issues in the developing world
- practise a range of skills required in the field.
You can also get in-country experience by studying abroad. The University partners the Australian Consortium for ‘In-Country’ Indonesian Studies. We offer programs with Scope Global in Vietnam, Indonesia, Africa and Asia.
Where could it take you
- Graduates go on to all sorts of rewarding careers that focus on strengthening the wellbeing of communities in developing countries. You could be an international aid agency employee or humanitarian aid worker. You might provide hands-on support in disaster zones. Perhaps you’ll be a project officer or conduct research for a non-governmental organisation.
