Communication with Honours at the University of Newcastle

CommunicationsWith increasing competition in all sectors of employment, students who graduate with an Honours degree have a distinct advantage. It is often considered by employers as an added skill and has been used by previous graduates to pursue higher positions and salaries.

The Honours program is designed to further develop and encourage you in your area of specialisation and prepares you for a successful career in the communication industry. It also provides a pathway into research degree study.

Offered by the School of Creative Industries through the Faculty of Education and Arts, the Honours degree in communication aims to produce graduates who will have a well-developed capacity to think critically and creatively about society and culture and their relationship with research into professional communication practice.
