About the Course

Learn about journalism, media production, advertising and public relations, and choose a field to suit you. Step into industry or continue with a Bachelor of Media and Communication (Honours). This degree strongly integrates theory and practice. In the first part of the degree, you will work and learn with students from other communication disciplines and investigate the advantages of interdisciplinary media skills. You’ll then be given the opportunity to specialise in a professional communication area of interest. In a changing environment that’s heavily influenced by cultural trends and advancements in technology, communication empowers people. Become a multi-skilled communicator with cross-platform skills ready for media and communication industries. In your third year, you will undertake a professional placement with government departments, media or advertising agencies, community TV, radio stations or consultancies that RMIT has existing relationships with, or in an approved placement of your own choosing. All courses are delivered in English. You will have access to online and digital resources through the myRMIT student portal, and additional assistance is available from the RMIT Study and Learning Centre.
