What will I learn?

You’ll gain an understanding of the complexities, challenges, and rewards of interpersonal and organisational communication – you’ll be a communication specialist.

The Bachelor of Communication (Communication Management) gives you insight into how organisations and communities use communication, whatever form it takes. You’ll investigate how factors such as culture, gender and technology influence our ability to connect with others.

You can choose from courses that will re-shape how you understand yourself and your world, including Cross-Cultural Communication, Organisational Communication, Gender and Communication in Organisations. If you keep your grades up, you’ll also have the option of completing a communication internship.

Become a sought-after employee

You’ll emerge with skills that potential employers find very desirable. Communication management shows you how to communicate with diverse groups of people inside various organisational contexts. You'll learn how to communicate with a wide range of people, and write for a range of audiences across different media.
