Course outline

The Bachelor of Communication prepares you for a dynamic career in the rapidly evolving digital media, entertainment, communication, and news landscape. The course integrates professional skills with critical and creative thinking, authentic industry experiences, and digital media literacy skills with core disciplinary theories and research methodologies. Drawing from the latest scholarship in the field and a global network of industry leaders, the program offers you research-led, on-campus learning environments as well as opportunities to expand those learning experiences to include real-world settings from around Australia and the world.

The Bachelor of Justice equips you for a wide variety of employment in the criminal justice, government (state and federal), law enforcement and policing, and intelligence/security fields. Past graduates have developed successful careers in the state or federal police services and correctional facilities, created social and justice policies for governments, contributed to the work of advocacy centres (e.g. women, youth and children’s advocacy), become criminologists, and advanced into Defence, Customs and the Australian Crime Commission.
