In this subject students tackle real-world global problems. Through off-campus field trips, in-class seminars and workshops, and engagement with community and industry, students examine global issues and how they manifest and are addressed in local contexts. The subject looks at different theories of social change and applied-sector approaches to addressing the processes and consequences of globalisation, and utilise knowledge from the diverse majors to propose innovative solutions. Skills developed include: combining knowledge from global studies with knowledge from the majors; undertaking primary research through fieldwork; engaging professionally with external organisations and sensitively with local communities; independent and collaborative research on global phenomena; and oral, visual and written presentation (print and digital).
