Throughout my studies in media, I have always been interested in the different approaches organisations and individuals use to influence the public narrative surrounding them, and this degree allows me to delve deeper into the underlying strategic and ethical choices made my communications practitioners, as well as gaining experience in the range of tools and content types that are used in an effective communications plan.

"Coming from a developing country, it was interesting to learn about views from Australia and the other parts of the world. After learning social media strategies and SMART objectives, I realised how social media is an important tool to influence audiences. I also particularly enjoy the workshops as it broadens your view to hear opinions from your peers."

"Unlike most lecture-based courses, my courses are mostly workshops. For me, the benefit of workshops is that they can enhance communication with professors and peers. As a result, the interest in the course is greatly improved, and the knowledge can be applied."
