About the course
What can I expect out of this qualification?
Graduates will build on the interdisciplinary approach to the study of communication to a higher level than a BC graduate. They will have a specialised knowledge of two complementary communication disciplines representing both business and humanities approaches to the field. They can critically evaluate and apply theories in diverse academic contexts, particularly those that encourage cross-disciplinary and inter-sectoral collaboration. They will have a good grasp of the key underlying principles of communication and be able to implement and adapt these principles within a rapidly-changing professional environment.
