What will I learn?

Bachelor of Communication (Digital Media)

This course lets you combine communication studies with an emphasis on digital innovation, practical skills, and industry placements and connections.

Get industry experience through internships and work placements in government departments and agencies as well as media, advertising and public relations organisations.

Our students have completed placements with Network Ten, Brisbane Festival, Hyperplex Cinemas and BBS Communications Group.

In your third year you'll investigate and engage with the local media sector, including contributing to the latest media platforms, and you'll build your professional networks.

We are a world-leader in media and communication research, through its Digital Media Research Centre. If you're a high-achieving student, you may like to consider research pathways including the option to progress to a PhD.

Bachelor of Laws (Honours)

The defining nature of our law degree is the unique balance between theory and practice. During your degree, you'll complete the academic law units required for admission to legal practice, as well as elective units that align with your career interests.

Through your study you'll develop necessary legal skills such as legal research, problem solving, critical analysis, dispute resolution, and oral and written communication.

Apply legal expertise to jobs in the communication industries or use your digital and social media skills in specialist legal practices such as privacy, freedom of speech, litigation or criminal law.

Our course will also help you understand and promote the ethical standards of the legal profession and to appreciate international and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.

Our Bachelor of Laws (Honours) is a higher qualification than a bachelor degree, as it has honours-level content integrated throughout the course. The advanced knowledge and skills in this course will benefit your professional career, or future research and study.
