You will:

  • develop and implement social media campaigns to gain followers and create conversations with primary audiences
  • understand the range of social media metrics available to achieve real results for organisations
  • align social media platforms to audiences and advise on the use of available digital channels
  • manage and grow online communities
  • write digital content, including blogs and content calendars
  • create text and visual assets for presentations, websites, email newsletters, tenders and submissions
  • design social media banners and edit in-house video content for social media platforms
  • manage social media content publishing, website editing, analysis, optimisation and refinement.

This degree allows you to select two majors, ensuring you graduate with a broad knowledge of two areas of interest. 

You can choose a second major from the following:

  • Creative Writing and Literature
  • English Language
  • History and Global Politics
  • Languages (French/Italian/Japanese)
  • Law, Politics and Policy
  • Performing Arts
  • Psychology
  • Screen Studies

In addition to your two majors, you will also be required to complete four courses from a selected list of minors (also from the above list) and two elective courses in an area of your interest.

You will also graduate with writing, presentation, digital, communication, research and problem-solving skills that can be transferable across various roles and are highly regarded by prospective employers.

If you finish your degree with a credit or higher grade point average (GPA), you could also be eligible for the one-year Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree. 

This degree increases your employment prospects by enabling you to gain expertise in two areas of interest.

Study one of the few social media majors offered in Australia, and graduate with social media expertise that is highly sought after by employers to set you apart from other graduates.

This is a top-ranked degree for student satisfaction; top 10 in South Australia for student satisfaction in Humanities, Culture, and Social Sciences.

There is also an opportunity to study a portion of your degree overseas as part of the University’s Hawke Ambassador International Volunteer Experience Program (full semester) or Hawke Professional Experience Program (part semester).
