The National Centre for Australian Studies (NCAS) offers an innovative, vocationally oriented graduate program in communications and media studies. It is focused particularly on challenges posed by the emergence of digital media, globalisation and increasing levels of cross-cultural exchange.

The last decade has been one of unprecedented change in communications and media content, forms, technology and policy with wide-ranging implications for business, politics, public administration and everyday life. The graduate program in communications and media studies examines these developments from a historical, political and theoretical perspective and seeks to further students' understanding of communications and media systems both locally and globally.
