Master of Communications and Media Studies

The Master of Communications and Media Studies aims to further students’ understanding of communications and media systems both locally and globally.

Communications and Media Studies was ranked No.21 in the world in the QS World University Rankings by Subject for 2013.

The course focuses on challenges posed by the emergence of digital media, globalisation and increasing levels of cross-cultural exchange. The last decade has been one of unprecedented change in communications and media content, forms, technology and policy with wide-ranging implications for business, politics, public administration and everyday life. This course examines these developments from an historical, political and theoretical perspective.

The course is particularly designed to focus on themes relevant to those employed, or seeking employment, in communications and media industries (e.g. electronic journalism, policy formulation, public relations, and tourism marketing), and those wishing to expand their expertise for teaching purposes or further study.

Industry Internships

Students have the opportunity to undertake an industry internship whilst gaining credit towards their degree. Recent organisations that our students have interned with include the Slattery Media Group, Greta Donaldson Publicity, and the Australian Government’s Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy.

With the course coordinator’s approval, students may be able to undertake an international internship.
