Course Description

The Bachelor of Communication is offered through Open Universities Australia (OUA). Students will qualify for this degree after the completion of at least eight Griffith units along with two majors of six units each, chosen from either Business Communication, Creative Writing, Journalism, Public Relations or Screen Studies, plus the core units, associated prerequisites, and the required number of free-choice electives.

All students are recommended to select their electives from the OUA list, and should contact Griffith for approval of alternative elective units.

Students who do not wish to complete the entire bachelor degree are able to exit with a certificate or diploma award. Both of these qualifications can be used for developing knowledge in a particular area while requiring a much shorter period of time than a degree. These smaller qualifications are beneficial for students who need to develop specialised knowledge or are just beginning and are experiencing trepidation about completing a full degree.
