DIPLOMA IN MASS COMMUNICATION

KPT/JPS (A 8399) 02/18

Be an influencer in the media landscape.

Designed with the perfect balance of theory and practice, KDU’s Diploma in Communication & Media ensures students are grounded with a strong foundation in the communications field and are exposed to real-world experience through projects and campaigns.

Students will pick up knowledge and develop skills in areas such as radio and TV production, journalism, digital media, advertising and public relations, and complemented with writing, public speaking, media planning and research skills. These exposure into the different aspects of the industry allow students a deeper insight of these communication areas, which helps them to decide on their specialisation in the future.

Students will train in our state-of-the-art creative suites and studios, allowing them access to industry-standard tools and practices. Not only that, students will also garner plenty of real-world experience through our industry collaborations.

Upon completion of the programme, students may opt to articulate into our Bachelor of Communication programme, or to Australia’s Queensland University of Technology and Griffith University.
