Undergraduate courses and units
Our primary undergraduate offering is the BA (Internet Communications) which students complete by enrolling in the Internet Communications major of the BA Humanities at Curtin University. Students can do this major alone, or as a double major with some other offerings (such as Digital Design and Professional Writing). You can study this degree internally or externally.
The BA (Internet Communications) can also be done through Open Universities Australia: you study externally, and with access to a range of units from other universities through the OUA system. There are four study periods a year, rather than the traditional two semesters at Curtin. The degree is awarded by Curtin University.
We also offer the Web Media stream in the BA (Mass Communication) which is a shorter version of the major (6 units instead of 10-12), designed to be taken along with one or two other streams in areas such as marketing, public relations, screen production, design or journalism. The BA (Mass Communication) option is only available to students studying at Curtin campus, or one of its off-shore partner institutions (such as Charles Telfair Institute in Mauritius).
Most of our units are also readily available to any student, whatever their degree or course, to take as electives, that complement their major study. Taking our units as electives mean you can choose the right amount of Internet Communications for your needs to complement the rest of your degree.
