Communication is a broad field that encompasses the vast world of mass communication, including public relations, marketing, advertising interpersonal communication, intercultural communication, journalism, and more.

Students who study communication have plenty of options when they graduate, and can enter many different fields due to the broad nature of their degrees.

Many communication students specialise in a particular area during the latter years of their programme, but they still have to know the basics!

The communication jargon they learn is not just for acing exams but will also be useful in the workplace, where they will need to apply communication concepts to real-world scenarios.
