About this course

Bachelor of Communication (Professional Communication)

This course prepares you for communication roles across a broad range of professional settings in small and large organisations.

In addition to the high-level professional writing skills required by employers, you will develop knowledge and experience in a range of areas. These include organisational communication such as strategic speech writing and delivery, and persuasive writing, including the role of rhetoric in contemporary communications and important societal debates.

You will graduate with advanced writing and communication competence - a rare skill keenly sought by employers - as well as practical industry knowledge and networks.

Graduates can work as professional writers and editors in corporate, government, community and freelance capacities. Your skills support careers in leadership and management in the private sector.

Bachelor of Nutrition Science

During this course, professional placements offer more than just an experience in nutrition. You can contribute to a real project or initiative that is making immediate changes to improve health outcomes. It is an excellent opportunity to work alongside other professionals. You can also travel and engage with communities in rural and remote Australia, and overseas.

You will be taught by staff who are able to offer insight into areas of practice that include sports nutrition, health promotion, childhood obesity, Indigenous health and research. Their industry experience combined with case studies offered by guest lecturers will prepare you as a professional who can adapt your skills to best suit the needs and expectations of your audience.

Use your combined communication and nutrition science skills to promote healthy lifestyle choices and prevent diet-related disease through mass communication. Work as health communications specialist, health and nutrition writer, nutritional health promotion officer and educator, nutritional product promotion or marketing.
