The Postgraduate Diploma (PGDipArts) in Communication Studies or in Film and Media Studies is a structured programme of postgraduate coursework.
The programme advances knowledge and skills in the same major as your 3-year undergraduate Bachelor's degree, and is also a recognised qualification for admission as a candidate for the Master of Arts.
With the same course of study as the Honours programme, you will undertake independent research to build on the information literacy and communication skills established in your undergraduate BA. PGDipArts offers greater flexibility than Honours, including part time study options.
