BA Hons in Strategic Communication (Corporate Communication)

General

Program Description

Corporate Communication Honours facilitates both theoretical and applied competence in corporate communication. Specialised knowledge of corporate communication theory facilitates the ability to critically review, consolidate and extend corporate communication theory to create appropriate responses and to resolve abstract contextual corporate communication problems. The development of practical skill sets through experiential learning in the form of internships and portfolio based training facilitate the acquisition of applied and reflexive competence which promote the ability to transfer and apply corporate communication skills sets in a range of communication contexts. This course also instils the moral and ethical sensitivity required for a responsible practice of corporate communications.

Admission requirements

Permission may be granted by the Head of the Department to take an Honours module from another subject.

All research programmes for Masters and PhD can register throughout the year.

End Date: Academic starts in January and ends in December. Programme deadline is determined by the duration of the programme.
