Communication at the University of Newcastle

"In this degree I've learnt from lecturers who have been in the industry for decades... I'm leaving this degree with a job ready to go into the workforce" - Sally

If the idea of writing for media, working in television production, producing a radio program or working as a public relations consultant inspires you, then look no further than the Bachelor of Communication.

When you study communication and media through the Bachelor of Communication at the University of Newcastle, you will develop the skills to produce thoughtful and creative work. You will learn to push your individual boundaries and work as part of a team contributing to the dynamic cultural and creative industries both in Australia and around the globe.

Offered by the School of Creative Industries through the Faculty of Education and Arts, the Bachelor of Communication will give you an in-depth understanding of both communication theory and practice. Besides a wide range of practical skills providing you with a foundation and confidence to enhance your ability to develop your creative potential, you will also develop critical and analytical awareness of the cultural, economic and social significance of communication in a complex and rapidly changing global media environment.

Students who complete the Bachelor of Communication with the public relations major (as revised in 2012) will graduate with a degree accredited by the Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA). The pre-2012 program structure does not have PRIA accreditation.
