Bachelor of Communication and Media Studies - Bachelor
This double degree program enables students to combine a
major study from the Bachelor Communication and Media Studies
with the core subjects and a major study from the Bachelor
of Commerce. Many students interested in communication studies
actually want to work at management level in the business
sector. The advertising and marketing major in the BCM will
allow Commerce students a little more space to extend their
business focus. The core subjects and the other majors in
the degree (journalism and screen and media studies, for example)
add employment options to the degree program.
To qualify for the award of the Bachelor of Communication
and Media Studies/Bachelor of Commerce, a candidate must:
- complete all the compulsory (core) subjects in the Bachelor
of Communication and Media Studies and the required subjects
of one of the major studies in that degree;
- complete subjects from the Commerce Schedule, including
core subjects, and subjects to satisfy the requirements
of one of the Commerce majors.
- complete not more than 90 credit points at 100-level;
- where necessary, undertake elective subjects from the
Course Structures of the Bachelor of Commerce, the Bachelor
of Communication and Media Studies or the General Schedule
to ensure that at least 216 credit points have been completed.
Note: Students undertaking this double degree program may
not complete both the Marketing major in the Bachelor of Commerce
and the Advertising and Marketing major in the Bachelor of
Communication and Media Studies.
Assessment in this course varies between subjects and programs,
but typically includes a combination of essays, tutorial/seminar
presentations and in-class tests and/or exams. Some subjects
may have an additional practical component. The assessment
requirements of each subject are set out in the individual
subject outlines which students receive in the first week
