    Bachelor of Media and Communication with Honours [A4M]


    Studying Honours in Media and Communication is your chance to get an edge in the media industry while investigating a project you're truly passionate about.

    Honours combines units of study with a thesis focused on a topic you devise yourself. Your research can investigate virtually anything in media, from politics to podcasts.

    You will complete your project supported by your supervisor, an academic whose expertise aligns with your topic, and whose combination of research and industry experience will guide you through.

    Research skills are vital to any career in the media industry, from journalism to corporate communications. Honours is an excellent way to get an advantage in the job market, lay the foundation for a higher research degree, or work towards becoming an expert in your chosen field.

    • select, adapt and effectively apply research processes, methodologies, tools, and techniques to plan, conduct and manage and independent ICT-related research project;

    • be aware of the social consequences of ICT-related research and respond appropriately to ethical considerations and act in accordance with best practice and industry standards;
    • analyse, synthesise and evaluate factors to answer a research question, and to defend a research approach;
    • document and communicate effectively the research techniques used and the results of the research both orally and in a written thesis;
    • evaluate and communicate the likely utility of emerging or advanced ICT to an individual or organization;
    • apply abstraction and computational, creative and critical thinking to a problem, identify and define the ICT requirements, apply knowledge of advanced ICT principles and technical skills to develop and evaluate strengths and weaknesses of potential solutions; and
