Arts and Social Sciences

Taking action starts with understanding interaction.

We believe an understanding of language, people and culture is key to effecting world change. That’s what makes Swinburne arts and social sciences courses special.

Arts and social sciences courses take you on a life-changing journey into human interaction and behaviour. Together, we uncover how today’s technology impacts the way we think, behave and interact. You’ll also learn what drives different people, and the connections between social science and communication.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the wisdom and skills to put your knowledge into practice.

An arts and social sciences course could lead to a career in policy development, community work, international relations, publishing, politics, social change, education and beyond.

We think it’s an experience that makes the adventure worth taking.
Come, see for yourself.

I was inspired by students visiting Swinburne on exchange to take advantage of overseas study opportunities. My study abroad experience has given me more confidence and strong adaptability skills, and I've forged lifelong friendships.
