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 Public Health

This course offers the flexibility that allows you to concentrate your studies in areas that align with career opportunities. You will choose five elective units from areas that include community nutrition, Indigenous health, family and gender issues, health management and general studies in psychology.

Our graduates are strategic thinkers who can apply their knowledge to develop innovative solutions that create improved health and quality of life for everyone.

With your public health and communication knowledge, you can implement strategies that promote healthy lifestyle choices, prevent the spread of disease and improve education. Work as a health communications specialist, print and online editor, or in health products promotion and marketing.
