About modules

A module allows students to build a personalised skill set that complements their studies and enhances their career potential.

What are modules?

Modules are three courses grouped together around a particular theme that focus on a specific skill or specialisation. They are designed to add to your skill set for future employment and potentially benefit your future career path. A module can be taken under either the Bachelor of Communication or the Bachelor of Arts.

For the BA, the degree's flexible nature allows students to pursue their interests with electives or use modules to gain specified skills.

Modules are compulsory for the BC and are designed to add to the skills you will learn through your degree and help you further specialise in your area of interest or add an additional dimension to your employability.

The benefits of taking a module

  • Create a focused study path alongside your majors.
  • Gain capabilities in specific, skills-based areas outside your majors.
  • Stand out from other graduates and enhance
    your career prospects.
  • Have your module formally acknowledged on your academic record to demonstrate your additional knowledge and skills.
