This 1.5 year full-time (or part-time equivalent) postgraduate program, designed for communication graduates and professionals, will help you develop highly valuable communication skills and set yourself up for career success in a range of communication industries.
You can choose one of two fields of study - Communication for Social Change or Strategic Communication.
UQ is the only Australian university to offer study in the emerging field of Communication for Social Change. This field 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 areas, 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:
