Why Study Communication Science?

Communication is at the heart of being human. Without it, we cannot connect with others and have lasting relationships. Communication is also central to effective collaboration in the workplace. It is needed to convey and understand instructions, to solve conflict (even if most conflict is caused by poor communication!) and to exchange important messages between the organisation and its stakeholders. At IIE MSA, we also explore how the cyber cultures of the 21st century mass media influence the way we live and work.

To study Communication Science you can enroll for the IIE Bachelor of Arts degree with a study area in English and Communication Science, and Communication Science and Psychology, offered at IIE MSA.

Following completion of your three-year Bachelor’s degree, you can articulate into the IIE Bachelor of Social Science (Honours), and subsequently, a research IIE Master of Philosophy in Arts.
