About Bachelor of Social Science / Bachelor of Laws (Honours) at University of Newcastle, Australia

Within this combined degree program, students study a combination of Social Science and Law courses over a period of five years full-time. On completion of the first three years students will have completed all the required courses for the Bachelor of Social Science degree. In the final two years of the combined degree program students complete the requirements of the Bachelor of Laws and may enrol in these two years on a less than full time basis.

Students completing this combined degree meet the academic requirement to practise law in NSW, and acquire skills and knowledge through their social science studies. Social Science is especially concerned with theories about life cycle, gender, class, race, work, social justice and social organisation. Its theories are the result of systematic thinking, observation and reflection. Social Science theory and research seek to contribute to the political and moral debates in society, rather than attempting to dictate precise solutions to social problems. Students wishing to practise Law must also complete postgraduate professional training approved by the Legal Profession Admission Board. Alternatively, students completing this degree may apply for entry to the Bachelor of Laws/Diploma of Legal Practice program which allows immediate admission to legal practice on graduation.

Commencement in this program is only available in Semester 1. Due to timetabling issues this program is not available for a Semester 2 commencement.

On successful completion of the program students will have:

  • Demonstrate the capacity to provide professional advice, based on specialised knowledge of law and its application in diverse contexts, to employers, government and individual clients.
