About this course

Undertake a year of specialist study in a communication discipline that interests you most (advertising, journalism, public relations, digital media) with the Bachelor of Communication (Honours). You will work with experienced researchers and a dedicated supervisor to develop and research your own project, gaining valuable research skills and advanced knowledge sought after by employers.

Honours is an optional year of study that allows you to combine the theory and practical skills gained throughout your undergraduate degree.

You will engage with theories and concepts in your chosen discipline, explore various research methods and then design a research project that you will carry through to its fruition under the guidance of an experienced academic supervisor. You'll improve your critical and constructive thinking and gain practical research skills that you can use in a range of private and public sectors to positively impact issues you care about.

Do you want to specialise in a particular aspect of communication?

Work with a dedicated supervisor on a research project that you're passionate about. Focusing on an issue with real-world application, you can specialise in any facet of communication including:

  • advertising
  • digital media
  • journalism
  • public relations.

Combine coursework along with your research project by engaging with theories and concepts in your chosen discipline. Use the opportunity this course brings to showcase your talents and work ethic to potential employers across a range of sectors.

After graduating, you can further your studies in research or professional practice by applying for direct entry into second year of the Master of Communication by coursework, a Master of Arts by Research, or you could pursue a PhD.
