Course summary

This double degree fulfils the academic requirement for admission as a lawyer and gives students the opportunity to gain an understanding of the law as it applies to the social sciences.

Bachelor of Social Science majors include sociology; politics and government; and study streams in development studies, cultural studies and welfare studies. University-wide majors are also available in this course.

There are no majors in the Bachelor of Laws but a comprehensive range of electives is available, allowing students to customise their studies.

Applicants who do not have the required entry mark are encouraged to apply for the Bachelor of Social Science. If those students achieve the required grade point average during that course, they may then apply for transfer into the double degree.
