The Graduate Certificate in Internet Communications provides students with an opportunity to learn some of the key aspects of the human dimensions of the Internet: how people network, collaborate, and share information through Internet communications, media and design. Depending on choice of units, students will develop skills in one or more of: creating, maintaining and managing online communications for personal and commercial interactions, as well as gaining knowledge of the social and cultural contexts within which those interactions occur. The approach is interdisciplinary: students develop skills in websites, public communication, social network management, collaboration via virtual organisations, and web media production. At the same time they will understand the political, economic and social changes associated with the Internet. By taking this course, students will add to their existing qualification a basic level knowledge and skills needed for them to become an astute, engaged professional communicator via the Internet.
The course contains options units only. Students study 4 units from the list of options available, with choices dependent on the semesters in which units are offered. Learning takes place through a mix of individual study, using materials provided by Curtin in electronic or print format, and group collaboration and communication. Active student participation and immersion in the Internet environment is emphasised.
