This is the biggest department within the School of Communication. At present it offers three different qualification streams. The degree course programmess in Corporate and Marketing Communication offer qualifications at both undergraduate and post graduate level, while the Diploma in Public Relations and Communication is specifically directed towards vocationally based skills development and work integrated learning. The qualifications housed in this department all offer a blend of theoretical and vocational competency, but each has its specific focus in terms of the communication industries for who we educate our students. Going forward, the Department is developing a degree programme in Strategic Communication. This program will reflect the convergence that is currently emerging in terms of both theory and practice between corporate and marketing communication, and will incorporate the growing need for a strategic approach to communication management within these contexts.
