Why study media and communication at QUT?

Have you ever wondered who decides what kind of content you can download to your mobile phone, or the style of Google ads that display on your friends' blog sites? Are you interested in media technologies or exploring the many ways in which we communicate, both organisationally or individually?

QUT's Bachelor of Media and Communication course is centred on the distribution of creative content, including an emphasis on new media, television, radio, print, the Internet, mobile technologies, movies, advertising, public relations and music. It also encompasses media research and media policy, so you will understand how the media works, its impacts on society, and the issues which shape public debate about the media.

The QUT media and communication degree boasts a genuine mix of real-world applications and an established academic reputation. Practical skills are taught within an informed theoretical context by staff who are actively engaged in leading-edge research.

Our students maintain the industry-acclaimed Brisbane Media Map, an online directory of Brisbane media companies. The Media Map is a valuable resource for students, job seekers, potential investors and industry professionals.
