The Bachelor of Communication and Media degree offers students a strong foundation in global communication and media industries. This degree has a focus on preparing students for global careers in digital and social media, visual communication design, journalism, screen media production, marketing, communication and advertising. Students will encounter key ideas in the study and practice of media and communications, and gain flexible and transferable skills that will prepare them for informed engagement with the changing world of global media culture. International Studies is the analysis, appreciation and study of the diversity of the global community. It examines the relationships of politics, society, culture, language, and history in a range of countries and globally. International Studies teaches students how to analyse national and global issues. Students learn about the forces shaping the modern world and the theories that underpin our understanding of the most important global issues. Students will also gain language skills and we strongly encourage students to undertake study abroad to further expand their skills. The two degrees are complementary with their focus on internationalisation and globalisation from different perspectives.
