COMMUNICATION & SOCIETY will allow you to examine the rapidly changing transformations in society, people and technologies. Therefore, it's important that you understand the different forms of social communication that take place between individuals, organisations, humanity and nature. This course will also explore the way that communication takes shape through the evolving use of the media. The course uses an equal amount of theoretical and practical aspects of communication including non-verbal and unconscious communication. Both subjects will teach you through a variation of lectures, tutorials and workshops and you'll partake in discussions and group work. This joint honours degree will allow you to possess well-rounded skills which are actively sought after by employers such as; interpersonal skills, creativity, imagination, independent learning and an open mind.
