Overview

Bachelor of Communication and Media

This degree has been developed and designed with industry, which means it is relevant, up-to-date and guaranteed to provide you with the best start in this fast-paced industry.

In fact, the curriculum continues to be informed by industry partners, meaning you’re accessing content and knowledge which is always relevant and up to date. 

This style of learning, combined with final-year real-world experience, ensures you graduate career-ready.

You will learn how to write, plan, deliver and evaluate communication strategies that engage and inform target audiences using a range of media platforms. 

With a focus on communication for both traditional and online media, you'll study:

  • writing and content creation for traditional and online
  • social media strategy, engagement and content creation
  • critical and analytical thinking required for the strategic planning and management of communication and media
  • communication and media research
  • media law and ethics
  • emerging trends

Studying communication and media at UniSA gives you the flexibility to select a sub-major, so you can specialise in fields such as journalism, film and television, social media, marketing, or digital media. 

A social media sub-major would be highly desirable in a social media management role, while a journalism sub-major would prepare you for media advisor roles.

 If you're interested in digital content, then a digital media sub-major may be for you. 

Other popular sub-majors include marketing, film and television, tourism, and event management.

You will also select two electives, enabling you to further build on your skills and knowledge. 

There is a focus on professional practice, and during your final year, you will get the opportunity to complete an industry placement working in a public relations, communication management or media role.

Practical, real-world experience is a key component of this degree and in your final year, you will complete an industry internship.

 Industry and community engagement opportunities are also featured in several courses, enabling you to put your skills to practice on real communication projects.

Eligible students can gain a further competitive advantage by completing an undergraduate degree in Communication and Media with a Master of Communication in just four years. 

This is a great way of elevating your career prospects.

Based on academic merit and quota, you may have the option to do the one-year Bachelor of Arts (Honours) at the end of this degree. 

Honours is an intensive year of advanced study that develops your abilities in academic research.

 It allows you to research a topic that interests you. Other selection criteria may apply.
