MC080 – Master of Communication
The Master of Communication provides a unique combination of theoretical communication studies, professional training and research.
Courses are offered in the areas of communication theory and practice, cinema, journalism, public relations, editing, cultural studies, philosophy and new media.
The Master of Communication is unique in that it allows you to design your own study program according to your needs and interests.
The program’s flexibility, commitment to relevance and passion for diversity makes it stand out from other programs. The program offers full-time students various modes of study while giving them up-to-date knowledge in communication research and professional practice. Key to the program’s strength is the diversity of students in the classroom, which enriches your learning experience.
Graduates will be likely to proceed to professional and management roles in communication and PR agencies, in management consultancies, and in organisations (business, government and non-profit) which use communication to achieve their goals.
Students who have successfully completed one of the school’s 96-credit-point graduate diplomas in journalism, public relations or editing and publishing can articulate into the Master of Communication. With an additional 48 credit points you can graduate with a ‘general’ Master of Communication or select from one of the specialised streams:
- Public Relations
The industry-specific Master of Communication focuses on adding research skills to professional capabilities that are developed within the graduate diploma. These courses enhance knowledge, self-directed research and industry-specific expertise.
Applicants who have successfully completed similar graduate diplomas at other universities, or can demonstrate a minimum of 10 years industry relevant experience, may also be considered for advanced entry into the program at the discretion of the Program Director.
