Course Information

This broad-based degree provides training for traditional media and communication roles, and will also prepare you for emerging roles that may not yet exist in these fields.

You’ll study various subjects in media, design and business, gaining foundational knowledge in media and corporate communications, and the scope to specialise in two fields of your choice.

You’ll develop your critical thinking and practical skills, using commercial-level equipment to produce content for print, radio, film, television and online media.

You’ll build an extensive portfolio of work and have opportunities to connect with industry professionals, so you can graduate ready for a range of positions in the communications industry.

In your first year you’ll be introduced to the different spokes of communications and study optional units that reflect or refine your learning in specific communication areas.

In your second and third years, you’ll choose two specialisations to study: one media specialisation and one design or business specialisation, or two media specialisations.
