Australia’s understanding of the Pacific is more important than ever thanks to a new, revitalised engagement with the region and an increasing number of Pacific Islanders settling in Australia. Take a leading role in Pacific policy and development, or explore your Pacific heritage, with a Bachelor of Pacific Studies.
As Australia’s engagement with the Pacific increases, so too does the need for graduates with Pacific expertise. The Bachelor of Pacific Studies is an interdisciplinary program offered by the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, Australia’s foremost centre for teaching and research on Oceania.
The Pacific is the recipient of the largest amount of Australia’s foreign aid budget, is in the midst of dealing with climate change and is the dumping ground for nuclear weapons testing. Therefore, it’s imperative that the leaders of the future have a deep understanding of this region.
ANU is the only place in Australia where you can develop an in-depth understanding of the cultural, social, geographic, linguistic and political contexts of this diverse region with a specialised undergraduate degree.
We also have an exciting range of overseas study opportunities, from exchanges, internships, study tours and more. Our College leads the University in international student mobility – 98% of our graduating cohort have taken a global study option, and so can you!
So come along to hear about the importance of engaging with our closest neighbours and consider enrolling in the Bachelor of Pacific Studies.
