Degree Overview

Communications and media are an exciting and inescapable part of modern life. With the advent of social media, the 24-hour news cycle, the development of citizen journalism, and the multiplatform delivery of film and screen production, the traditional media landscape has changed beyond recognition. This has presented new opportunities and avenues of communication for filmmakers, journalists, photographers, and other media practitioners.

The Bachelor of Communications & Media explores the principles and techniques of communications and media by examining and creating print, screen, and multimedia texts, using traditional, new and emerging media and screen production technologies.

The Bachelor of Arts component of this double degree allows you to complete an in-depth study in humanities or social science subjects. In contrast, the Bachelor of Communications & Media component will prepare you for various careers in journalism, film and screen production, digital communication, photography and much more.

You will complete a Major in journalism, film and screen production, or photography. You then have choices – you can complete a second Major in one of these three areas or a Minor. Or you can complete a second Major or Minor in a complementary area of study from a range of humanities, science, and social science disciplines. See the Program Requirements below for specific details.

You will study an Arts Major in a humanities or social science area of your choice, which will give you in-depth, specialist knowledge and skills that will allow you to contribute effectively to society’s cultural and intellectual life. Our Majors include English Literature, Social Justice, Politics and International Relations, History, Archaeology, Theatre Studies, Journalism and Film and Screen Production. See the Program Requirements for the complete list.
