Wintec’s Bachelor of Communication is for those who want to work in media, journalism, public relations, corporate communication, content creation, advertising and marketing.
This degree is for the creative person with a flair for writing, or working with images, or ideas (or all three). With that talent it is difficult to look past a career in the communications industry for diversity, challenge, and creative stimulation.
We’ve thrown out the old classrooms, lecture timetables, exams, and Powerpoints. Our degree is all about getting you problem solving from day one, in learning based on real-life projects, working alongside industry specialists, coaches, and mentors. We don’t lecture, we don’t talk down to you, we don’t bore. We do work alongside of you, and challenge you to be as creative as you can be.
The Bachelor of Communication runs across two 16-week semesters over three years. We’ll work you hard Monday to Thursday, leaving you a guaranteed long weekend.
Our approach is all about teamwork, and problem-based learning. And we’ve left you loads of options to construct your own skill set – we’ll even work with you to design some courses tailored just for you. A key feature of this approach is the one-week induction wānanga held at the beginning of each semester. This wānanga helps you form some of the key skills and relationships that will support your success in the programme.
And when you’re ready (and you will be) we’re going to put you into industry to gain work experience and credits for your degree.
