Bachelor of Communication - Social and Political Sciences / Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation

University of Technology Sydney

Social and political sciences come to life in the contemporary world through communication - inter-personal and community, and more widely in society and the global public sphere. This cross-disciplinary course investigates society, explores current issues, and questions implications of change and progress in the global community. Students undertake professional studies as well as social, cultural and communication theory and practice so they can ask questions, research issues, develop advocacy skills and develop effective communication strategies. Taking a trans-disciplinary approach, the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation utilises multiple perspectives from diverse fields, integrating a range of industry experiences, real-world projects and self-initiated proposals, equipping graduates to address the wicked problems, complex challenges and untapped opportunities in today's world. Combining social, political, historical and philosophical perspectives on how societies work, the course provides students with practical skills in qualitative and quantitative social research methods. Students learn how to understand social issues and how to think through ways of making a difference; how to research, communicate and plan contributions to national and international debates. The course equips students with the knowledge and skills to be involved in diverse organisations engaging with social change. By focusing on the high-level conceptual thinking and problem-solving practices that lead to the development of innovative, creative and entrepreneurial outcomes, students of the combined degree also gain leading edge capabilities that are highly valued in the globalised world, including dealing with critical and creative thinking, invention, complexity, innovation, future scenario building and entrepreneurship, and the ability to work on their own, across and between other disciplines.
