Master of Internet Communications

Course Description

This course extends the work done in the graduate diploma, adding more advanced individual project, production and/or research work. You will complete at least 33 per cent, and up to 50 per cent, of your studies by research or applied research.

You will select a major as in the graduate diploma, but will experience increased autonomy and self-management in your learning in the last four units of this course.

The internet communications postgraduate courses provide you with the chance to study the most important socio-technological phenomenon of the late 20th and early 21st century: the internet.

This program is designed to provide you with relevant and useful knowledge for your current or planned professional life. You will learn essential skills and develop deeper understandings of the growth, uses and application of the internet in many fields, with a particular emphasis on the creative communication of ideas in knowledge networks and the establishment of web presence through social media.

You will add specific internet knowledge and skills to your existing proficiencies and abilities. Creative overlap between current employment or personal interests and study is encouraged. The program has been designed specifically to allow you to study in a way that best suits you, with an emphasis on the specialised skills and knowledge you want.

Upon successful completion of the Graduate Certificate in Internet Communications, you may transfer to the Graduate Diploma in Internet Communications and subsequently enrol in the masters degree.
