Why study Communication?

Communication at ACTP puts you at the centre of the contemporary information society and economy. You will develop knowledge of communication and communication processes.

Communication straddles many aspects of life and work. In the core courses you will develop understanding and skills in a number of areas: visual, written, multimedia and spoken and interpersonal communication and in researching and exploring communications. You specialise by choosing a major, alongside electives, a second major or a minor. All combine practice and theory and provide a platform for either employment or further study.

Communication is an expanding area of employment and the Bachelor of Communication is a preparation for careers in public relations, advertising, media planning and analysis; film and television; web design and management; business communication; health promotion, and more. Further study can lead to careers in teaching.
