School of Humanities and Social Inquiry
The Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of International Studies combine traditional disciplines and modern theories with a focus on flexibility, professional skills and graduate qualities. They provide opportunities to choose from a variety of subjects and disciplines, such as Media and Global Development or Peace and Security Studies and Politics. Our double degrees allow students to combine courses from other faculties and schools and our Dean’s Scholars degrees offer high achievers additional support while challenging them to excel in their chosen fields.
School of Law
At UOW there is much more to studying law than simply learning legal theory and rules. One of our aims has always been to have graduates known for what we call ‘real world readiness’. You will have a sound skills base and you will also be a flexible, analytical thinker who is sensitive to the human side of the law.
The UOW Bachelor of Laws is accredited by the Bar Council of India and the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh. Students from India and Bangladesh are encouraged to apply. Graduates can be accredited to practice as a barrister or solicitor upon returning home, subject to the completion of any required bridging course.
