    Master of Strategic Communication [R7Z]


    Develop the professional skills, knowledge and tools to communicate across settings as diverse as the sciences, creative industries and politics.

    Our new Master of Strategic Communication has been developed to meet the complexity and dynamism of an ever increasingly digital and global communication environment. Jobs requiring communication skills are growing fast with employers demanding advanced analytical skills and professional-level communications expertise.

    In response, our degrees offer a unique pathway for students coming from undergraduate study or professional roles in the sciences, arts or business to tailor their education.

    Designed for those wanting to promote and implement change across a range of social, environment, political and business settings, these courses will help you to develop advanced analytical skills and professional-level communications expertise to applied ‘real-world' situations.

    Take advantage of the Media School's strong reputation in Media research and unparallel access to industry partners across Tasmania through a choice of specialisations:

    • Environmental Conservation and Management
    • Marketing Communication
    • Public and Environmental Health
    • Tourism and Experience

    Be taught by leading researchers and lecturers, who possess a broad range of industry experience in a state-of-the-art contemporary Media School supported by equipment and technical know-how.

    The aim of the course is to provide a sound understanding of the process of financial planning, together with some of the fundamental skills and knowledge that are required. In line with these objectives, each of the recognised steps in the financial planning process that have been developed by financial planners will be examined in detail, namely: gathering qualitative and quantitative data; identifying goals; identifying financial problems including: setting priorities, deciding on trade offs and considering opportunity costs; preparing or interpreting written recommendations; implementing agreed-upon plans; and, reviewing, revising and maintaining personal financial plans.

    The `key areas' that are important for the financial planning process are examined, namely: the regulatory framework; investments; managed funds; superannuation; home ownership; risk management and insurance; taxation; consumer credit; social security; estate planning. The role of institutional culture and organisational systems impacting on ethical practice and the need and opportunity to professionalise financial advice will be examined. Learning and teaching in this program focus on the key areas of financial planning theory, process, strategies and practice.

    The program takes a structured, scaffolded approach to its curriculum, where knowledge, skills and graduate attributes are built over time through an integrated and complementary set of financial planning units. The program is based around a dynamic, real world learning approach to student centred education, where students take responsibility for their own learning. Blended learning, as the central teaching and learning philosophy, forms the basis of the learning experience, where the class – whether online or face to face – is a space for in-depth, theory-practice discussion with peers, academic staff and financial planning professionals. The program is designed to develop students' knowledge and skills to apply financial planning philosophy and theory to analyse, evaluate and develop solutions and strategies to financial planning problems through authentic, problem-based learning.

    Graduates will have the capacity to reflect on experiences, and interpret complex information and practices through research and inquiry. Work functions in the occupational areas where this qualification may be used are subject to regulatory requirements.
