MJDU-BLWIR v.1 Business Law and International Relations Double Major (BCom)
This major/stream is part of a larger course. Information is specific to the major/stream, please refer to the course for more information.
The Business Law Major provides the knowledge and skills relevant to working in business or government. It does not lead to a professional legal qualification allowing admission to practice as a solicitor or barrister, but it does meet the increasing needs of government and industry for graduates with a background in law and business studies. The International Relations Major provides the opportunity for suitably qualified students to undertake a dissertation-based program in the field of social sciences. The program emphasises independent research and the analysis of advanced problems in the theory and practice of a specific discipline, or in the multidisciplinary approach to a topic, and requires the completion of a dissertation.
