Introduction

This combined degree course enables students to follow an international career in public relations, either working in Australia for an international organisation, or working internationally.

Public relations is the management function that enables organisations to communicate with internal and external audiences to achieve mutual understanding. It is a growing profession that is practised internationally. This course will provide students with the theoretical understanding and practical skills required to work as a public relations professional for private enterprise, a government organisation or a not-for-profit body. The Communication in Public Relations course is accredited by the Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA) and graduates are eligible to become professional members of the PRIA.

The International Studies degree investigates the interplay of cultural, political and economic forces in the regional and global arena, and allows students to develop an understanding of intercultural communication. This is enhanced by foreign language study and a highly recommended international exchange semester.

Students may choose to exit the degree after the equivalent of three years full-time study and take out the single BA International Studies degree. These students must consult their course convener during second year to ensure that they will be able to meet the course requirements.
