Why Study Communications and Media Production at Griffith College?

Communications is a fast-paced and, in today’s technology-driven environment, a growing industry that offers a huge variety of job roles. Griffith’s BA (Hons) in Communications and Media Production is a full-time, three-year programme that aims to give students a foundation in an array of communications platforms including social and digital media, photography, radio, investigative journalism, TV and video. The course is heavily project-based and the introduction of specialised streams in Years 2 and 3 allows learners to influence the path their studies take them down depending on where their interests lie.
