Selected major: Politics, Power and Technology
You’ll develop a deep understanding of key political concepts such as power, democracy and security in this major.
Probe and question political structures and how new media technology has created fresh opportunities for democratic mobilisation and participation at local, national and global levels, while opening up new ways to corrupt democratic processes.
Analyse how the use and misuse of technology influences security, privacy, freedom and human rights in traditional political processes and institutions.
Formulate strong arguments and use your critical thinking skills to provide solutions to the challenges facing governments and the governed in the twenty first century.
In this multi-disciplinary, you’ll learn about politics, philosophy, and history.
Why be on the outside looking in when you can be part of the vital conversation that shapes society and the world we live in? Explore the possibilities with Swinburne’s unique Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Applied Innovation double degree.
Our extensive arts offering provides plenty of scope to immerse yourself in the subjects that matter to you most. Learn how to gather, synthesise and assess information, conceptualise issues and express yourself effectively, both orally and in writing. Take on the future and offer solutions to the world’s most pressing problems with a transferable skill set of analytical thinking, cultural competency and digital literacy.
With your Bachelor of Applied Innovation, learn how to make decisions of impact, based on analytical and strategic thinking, human understanding and respect for future generations – with supporting technological know-how. Immersed in an interdisciplinary environment overseen by specialist academic teams who encourage a collaborative and entrepreneurial spirit, you’ll be challenged and inspired to develop transformative solutions to the complex challenges of today and the emerging opportunities of the future.
Both qualifications promise experiential learning through real-world placements, internships or industry-related project work.
