One of the first communication courses to focus on social media and digital technologies, the Bachelor of Communication (Digital and Social Media) at UTS ensures students become capable practitioners of the modern formats of digital communication. This rapidly evolving industry requires workers to be technologically literate, culturally aware, and innovative, with an ability to analyse and develop solutions to problems using digital media technologies. In the course, students are introduced to key debates around the role of social media as a communication tool, and its prevalence in day-to-day affairs. They also develop transferable, practical skills in social media management, user experience (UX) and user interface design (UI), and data visualisation and analysis.
Taking a transdisciplinary approach, the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation utilises multiple perspectives from diverse fields, integrating a range of industry experiences, real-world projects and self-initiated proposals, equipping graduates to address the wicked problems, complex challenges and untapped opportunities in today's world.
Through case study analysis and applied learning, the Bachelor of Communication (Digital and Social Media) offers a comprehensive understanding of digital and social media as both a social phenomenon and future career pathway. Students focus on practical exercises to develop user engagement strategies, create prototypes for app development, and understand the intricacies of social media communication. By the end of the course, students will have built a sizeable portfolio of work to show to employers and assist their entry into a large job market.
By focusing on the high-level conceptual thinking and problem-solving practices that lead to the development of innovative, creative and entrepreneurial outcomes, students of the combined degree also gain leading edge capabilities that are highly valued in the globalised world, including dealing with critical and creative thinking, invention, complexity, innovation, future scenario building and entrepreneurship, and the ability to work on their own, across and between other disciplines. These creative intelligence competencies enable graduates to navigate across a rapidly accelerating world of change.
