Why study Communication and Cultural Studies?

Honours in Communication and Cultural Studies enables students to work with an academic supervisor to design a thesis topic in Film and Television Studies, Media Studies, Communication Studies, or Cultural Studies. The Honours year focuses on developing and consolidating the knowledge and skills acquired during undergraduate study, with particular emphasis on using those skills in a sustained and purposeful way by conducting independent research. Apart from content knowledge, employers and professionals value Honours graduates advanced communication skills, the capacity for independent work, and the ability to think critically and write substantial reports. The main aims of the Honours year are:

  • To enable students with an adequate background in Communication and Cultural Studies, Media Studies, or Film and Television Studies to pursue further study in a specialist area in more depth than is possible with a pass degree.
  • To enhance students' capacity for independent research and to acquire research skills appropriate to their area of specialisation.
  • To train to a standard sufficient for enrolment in postgraduate research degrees, and for a specialist career. Achievement of first class or IIA honours allows entry to a PhD or MPhil program.
