  • Objectives
    The Bachelor of Social Science encompasses a mix of several disciplines including Criminology, Psychology, Counselling and Behavior Management. This program allows students to combine subjects from these areas and from other areas to complete a degree whose title reflects a specialisation in the Social Sciences.
  • Practical experience
    Work Experience & Internships Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree. This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace.

    Career Outcomes

    This program provides students with a basis for working in areas such as welfare, government departments, disability services or as disability officers or case workers, client support and advocacy as well as working with behavioural difficulties of children in educational settings. Those students who choose a Behavioural Management focus will learn the framework and procedures for implementing functional analytical therapy with clients who have severe behavioural difficulties. Students who choose Criminology focus combined with Behaviour Management will gain the ability to understand atypical behaviour patterns. Those students who combine their studies with Psychology will be provided with the basis for understanding the presenting problems with clients in order to develop effective needs-based treatment programs.

    Combined Degrees

    Students can combine this degree with any other undergraduate degree at Bond (except Medicine) to suit their professional and personal interests. Bond's three-semester academic year allows students to complete two degrees in the same time it would take to complete just one degree at other universities (dependant upon degree combination).
