Why a Degree in Communication and Media Studies?

Communication is one of the fastest growing and evolving fields in our ever-changing labour market. In fact, many of the jobs that are in greatest demand didn’t even exist 15 years ago. Whether working among business executives, bureaucrats or digital-age creatives, communication skills have become essential in almost every industry.

Our society has been profoundly altered by new developments in media technologies. Students in our programs understand and participate in the dramatic shifts in thinking about everything from copyright and privacy to authorship, identity, governance and ethics. They are ahead of the curve; able to position themselves as leaders in the Information Age, helping organizations improve their social media presence.

Expanding Opportunities


Many of our students work in traditional communication fields such as advertising and public relations, broadcasting, and politics, but increasingly our graduates’ expertise and knowledge are sought after in law, healthcare, tourism, IT, and in community organizations.

Our students have found rewarding work as advisors to federal Cabinet Ministers, and as communication strategists with leading charities, NGOs and corporations; they also work as entrepreneurs, researchers, and media and cultural policy analysts.

Shaping the Future


Above all, our graduates are informed and adaptable to new challenges, and they are able to synthesize and see patterns in complex ideas. It’s no wonder so many of our students quickly become skilled professionals, launching rewarding and productive careers while helping to shape the future of the field.
