Advancing your career options at SCU *

If you’re considering academic qualifications to improve your future career options, several programs offered through the School of Social and Workplace Development at Southern Cross University are worth a look. These degrees are tailored in terms of content, design and delivery to address the existing and potential needs both of industry and of students wishing to position themselves well within modern organisations.

One is the Bachelor of Business Administration (Human Resources Specialisation), which is designed for people either seeking careers as HR specialists or early in their careers as managers, wishing to go further and develop the skills required in dynamic and emerging organisations. The BBA offers a choice of study areas including Human Resource Development (HRD), Human Resource Management (HRM), Human Relations and Communication and Sociology of the Workplace.

The other program is the Bachelor of Social Science, which is designed for people who are either seeking to position themselves well for management careers or considering a career change in the future.

Apart from providing skills that are seen by many in industry as essential for people managers, this degree will give you a broad based qualification with a range of possible career outcomes, from being an HR professional, counsellor, youth worker or political analyst through to social researcher or policy adviser.

Both these programs provide flexible study options designed to fit in with the demands and challenges facing external students. If you’re looking for a different qualification with sound employment outcomes taught by staff who know external students well, one of these programs will suit your needs.
