Communication studies

AUT's communication studies programmes will give you a valuable foundation for key roles in lots of industries, including the media and communications fields.

As a communications student, you’ll have access to outstanding facilities and services, and you could work on live projects for real clients or do work experience with major organisations. You’ll be career-ready when you leave AUT.
