Bachelor of Communication Studies

The Bachelor of Communication Studies is a 4 year programme for undergraduates interested in majoring in Journalism, Advertising, Public Relations, Broadcast and Cinema Studies, Communications Research, Interdisciplinary and Information Analytics.

Students take core courses and some breadth courses in Year 1. In Year 2, they select electives in tracks they wish to specialise in. In semester 2 of year 2, students can choose to go on overseas exchange, and some electives can be taken in our partner universities.

When students return in Year 3, they continue with electives in their specialisation or in other areas. In semester 2 of year 3, they do a 22-week Professional Internship with one of our many partner organisations, or they "self-source" their own internship organisation.

Fourth year students embark on their final year projects. The project is done over 2 semesters and students work in teams of 4. At the end of the project, students submit reports and do presentations. Many of these projects that are submitted are of the highest quality and have received many accolades.

Communication Studies students also can apply for second majors in the College of Humanities & Social Sciences. Many students choose minors available from throughout the university
