Program handbook

Description

Communication is a global industry with significant cultural and commercial impact, and communication professionals provide text, vision and sound-based content for organisations, individuals and institutions that seek to represent themselves and others in the world. Our new Communication degree program prepares students to connect theory and practice, collaborate with peers and experts within local and global communities, and effect positive change by creating and designing industry-focused solutions to big issues.

Students have the option of completing a single or a double major in this program. Students completing a double major can choose either a double major from the Communication Major options (Double Major Pathway B); or one Communication Major and one School of Creative Industries Major (Double Major Pathway C) from the options listed in the handbook. The most ideal combinations of majors that reflect industry creative practice for Communication Graduates are listed below;

Double Major Pathway B

  • Media Arts Production and Public Relations
  • Media Arts Production and News Media
  • News Media and Public Relations

Double Major Pathway C

  • Media Arts Production and Animation & Interaction
  • Media Arts Production and Creative Arts
  • Public Relations and Graphic Design & Illustration

This program can be completed in three years. However, students completing either of the double Major options, should be aware that due to course availability the duration of their program may be extended. Students undertaking a double Major option are advised to consult with their Program Advisor regarding their academic program.

Additional support

AccessAbility provides advice and reasonable adjustments to Students with a medical or health condition or disability. If you require adjustments to undertake your program, contact the Student Support Advisors - AccessAbility before semester or early in the semester. They will work with the College or School to ensure that this happens in a timely manner.
