About Bachelor of Advanced Studies (Media and Communications) (Honours)

The Bachelor of Advanced Studies (Media and Communications) honours year is both a preparation for postgraduate study and a capstone to an undergraduate degree.

Honours can be the culmination of your formal education, an experience that extends your intellectual range, hones your research abilities, as well as analytical and communication techniques, and helps you to develop your interpersonal and professional skills.

During the Honours year you will attend seminar classes and work closely under the supervision of an academic staff member, an expert in the field of your research, to be challenged to think critically and bring your theoretical knowledge and practical experiences to bear on an independent research project, culminating in the submission of a major thesis.

The year also includes an internship, offering you a meaningful opportunity to gain first-hand experience of the media landscape within a professional organisation, and build valuable industry contacts before graduation.

These internships are dependent on your own ambitions and are available across an extensive range of areas, including national and international news organisations, public relations and advertising agencies, national television and radio outlets, and major print and online media.
