The Bachelor of Arts in International Studies is not offered as a separate degree, but is completed only in combination with the professional degree program. The engineering component of this degree is made up of subjects selected from the engineering core, the professional engineering practice program and the engineering fields of practice (majors) subjects. The international studies component is made up of subjects in language and culture, foundations in international studies, and contemporary society, and study undertaken in the country of the student's chosen international studies major. Students spend their fourth year of study at a university overseas.
