This half year full-time (or part-time equivalent) program is designed to enhance the skills of existing communication graduates and professionals.
You can choose from two fields of study - Communication for Social Change or Strategic Communication - and from a range of courses designed to increase your understanding of the application of communication theory and research to health promotion, business, public relations, policy and politics, intercultural relations and globalisation.
The emerging field of Communication for Social Change explores the different ways in which communication can be leveraged to bring about change in attitudes, behaviour and knowledge in individuals, organisations and communities. If you already have experience in these fields, the program will make you even more competitive as it complements and capitalises on studies and experience in other disciplines.
Strategic Communication develops your understanding and skill-set in professional communication practice and public relations, including campaign development, digital media strategy, and issues and crisis management. Graduates with a specialisation in Strategic Communication are well-equipped for diverse roles in public relations and marketing communication consultancies, not-for-profit organisations and government bodies, including organisational communication, crisis management, government relations, social media management and political campaigning roles.
Postgraduate study can take you anywhere. Depending on which field you choose, here are some of the careers you could be on your way to:
