If you want to learn more about the way we communicate and the effect the media has on our world, the Bachelor of Arts (Communication and Media Studies) is for you.

This degree combines the study of communication theory with the development of communications skills. You will analyse the areas of language, film, television and culture, while learning about interpersonal, group and mass communication, as well as communication in multicultural societies.

Learn from lecturers with decades of experience in mass communication fields and benefit from their networks of contacts in the media and public relations industries.
