Master of Arts in Communication Management


You’ll gain the skills to analyse and implement the latest practice in management of communication in both international and Australian contexts. You’ll examine the purposes and means by which leaders, organisations and interest groups create, coordinate and direct strategic communication – and the role of the media in these processes.

This course gives you the flexibility to pursue your passion. You can choose to complete the course in one year by undertaking three units in each semester and the third core unit in the Summer Term.

Accredited by the Public Relations Institute of Australia.
