There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.

Graduate subject - Public Communication - 400 level


In this subject students analyse the social construction of publics and organisation-public relationships. They study different models of public relations practice and draw on current theories about publics, audience and media to help them understand the development of strategies to communicate with internal and external publics. There is a strong focus on identifying the ethical implications of decisions, actions and outcomes in communicating with publics. Students are encouraged to participate in a discussion on approaches to empowering or influencing publics. The attitudes, knowledges, behaviours and issue positions of various publics are studied to enable students to assess how best to communicate with them. Students learn about different research strategies for understanding communicating with publics.
