Griffith University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00233E

The Bachelor of Communication and Journalism/Bachelor of Science will combine the specialised disciplines of biological, clinical, chemical, physical and mathematical sciences with the skills and capacity to communicate these within various professions, and to the broader public. Alongside scientific expertise, graduates will emerge with a suite of communication, writing and media production skills that will add a critical dimension to their employability. Graduates of this double degree will better navigate the contemporary context for science where global communication and media are pervasive and increasingly a concern for emergent and existing science professionals. Graduates employed in diverse sectors alongside those choosing to pursue specialised science communication careers (including science journalism) will be accommodated by this degree combination.
