About Bachelor of Development Studies / Bachelor of Social Science at University of Newcastle, Australia

The need for environmentally sustainable and equitable development is one of the most serious issues facing the contemporary world. Development Studies provides opportunities to study the causes and consequences of unequal development and assess policy options for a more equitable and sustainable future.

Social science provides you with the opportunity to analyse, challenge and gain an insight into theories about life cycle, gender, class, race, work, social justice and social organisation. Social science theories are the result of systematic thinking, observations and reflection, and contribute to political and moral debate in society, rather than dictate precise answers to complex social problems.

The combined program offers students an interdisciplinary understanding of uneven development in the Bachelor of Development Studies with a grounding in social science theory and practice from the Bachelor of Social Science. Students will be able to pursue 4 interdisciplinary majors in the Bachelor of Development Studies (Cultures and Citizenship, Environmental Sustainability, Globalisation and Economic Development and Urban and Regional Development) with complementary social majors of Community Welfare and Human Services; Criminology; History; HRM and Industrial Relations; Leisure and Tourism; Linguistics; and Psychology.
