Communications - School of Communications


B.A. in Communication Studies (Bachelor Honours Degree)

Think of the many ways in which we communicate: we communicate with each other (inter-personal communication); companies and public bodies use communications to operate effectively (organisational communication); and to interact with the public (public relations, advertising, information campaigns); and then there's the media, be it news and current affairs or entertainment - that inform us and help us to understand so much of what goes on around us.

The BA in Communication Studies will give you a thorough understanding of the role communications play in local, national and international settings by teaching you how to think critically about communication in its various forms. It will also develop your creative, analytical and problem-solving skills through its production based modules.
