About this course

Although the pace of global development is accelerating and health, housing and welfare have seen exciting advances in many areas, poverty, inequality and disease still define many communities. Finding sustainable ways to address these issues, and helping communities to improve their living standards and outlook for the future is essential to ensuring that the benefits of living in an increasingly globalised world are distributed fairly, while any negative impacts are minimised.   This double degree, which can be completed in just two-and-a-half years, develops your skills in applied social research and the analysis of policy in the context of inter-related social factors and development studies. You’ll be equipped to progress quickly in your career in development, humanitarian, political and policy-related work in government and non-government organisations in Australia and overseas, and in businesses with an interest in public policy decision-making.
