Social Media

Driving digital interaction starts with getting to know ‘the network’.

We believe social media has revolutionised the way we interact on a human, industry and cultural level. That’s why we offer Social Media at Swinburne.

Social Media is an opportunity to explore how the technology has transformed our way of communication over the past decade. We provide a comprehensive understanding of social media within social, cultural and industry contexts. You’ll also learn how to analyse new and emerging media technologies, as well as drive them across a number of industry applications.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your knowledge to the workplace. A wide range of careers can be found in media, social management, journalism, and Internet and digital marketing.

Take on a Grand Challenge

Is the Great Australian Dream of a quarter acre block dead? Will we be renters for life? How can we afford decent housing? In her final-year Grand Challenges project, Joanna Hajjar (pictured) wrestled with those questions and developed solutions alongside experts and fellow students.  

You too could dive into a Grand Challenge of your own, covering topics like sustainable cities or digital transformations in collaboration with the Centre for Urban Transitions.

The Swinburne Advantage

We turn knowing into know-how.

We believe an undergraduate education must be about more than knowledge. In today’s competitive job market, it must be about true job readiness.

Starting in 2016, we’re expanding access to our Work Integrated Learning opportunities. It’s just a matter of choosing the opportunity that suits your future.

Choose from professional degrees, professional placements, professional internships, industry-linked projects, industry study tours and accreditation placements. There are also a range of other opportunities you can create.

You’ll build invaluable skills and confidence in knowing you have what it takes to land a job in your field by graduation.

We think it’s an approach that makes the adventure worth taking. See for yourself.
The Swinburne Advantage. Available to all new undergraduate students from 2016.
