Part B. Practical and professional skills

It also involves developing students’ competency in ethical and legal aspects of media communication.These units will develop your capacity as a critical and creative professional who is able to apply your knowledge of a specialised area to provide discipline based solutions to commerce and economic policy.

Part C. Collaboration and Leadership
