Communication Courses overview

Communication facilitates expression, understanding, and innovation. It’s the tools we use to express truth and sense of self.

Communication skills are essential for navigating our paths in an increasingly connected, globalised world. Communication helps to exchange information, create relationships, enhance business exchange, and to learn about other people and cultures - it is indispensable for individuals and businesses alike.

Those who can express themselves well can help all manner of people, companies and projects do the same. Communication skills can be applied most anywhere you see fit.

Is communication for me?

If you are an empath with a knack for the written word, communications could be an enjoyable and profitable career for you. Those who thrive in the communication industry are fascinated by the ties between different people in the world. Communications specialists are intrigued by what connects us, by what influences us, and by what builds relationships.

Study pathway

Typically, people working in the field of communication will have a bachelor degree in something like communications, advertising, journalism, or media studies.

It is also possible to land a job in the industry without such a qualification. The ease of self-publishing and the status of social media clout can assist people to gain employment without necessarily having a qualification.

If you wish to study a postgraduate degree in communication but don’t have a degree in the specific field, don’t fret. Any subject under the broad umbrella of humanities could prepare you for postgraduate studies in communication. While you may need to catch up on core theoretical concepts, you will have analytical skills, research ability, and experience in explaining ideas from your previous degree to assist communications studies.

Employment options

Graduates of communication degrees are known for being flexible. They may find themselves in all manner of jobs, equipped with the skills to express, influence and connect.

People with communication degrees may work independently, or be the voice of a company. They could be helping along expression of staff and stakeholders within organisations, or work in the fields of journalism and media.
