Program overview

Professional communicators inform, convince, promote and educate. They tailor written and/or visual content for a specific audience, and produce work that is both informative and compelling.

Our courses keep up with the latest trends - we work with industry experts, and incorporate real-world projects. Our elective courses include the option to study Vietnamese for professional communication; this means you can be confident applying for jobs that require translation, group work, and inter-cultural communication.

Your internship may be in media and advertising agencies, or with one of our other leading industry partners.
