About the program

The Strategic Communication program at University of Johannesburg is a first formative qualification.

The Department of Strategic Communication is unique in its multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approach to the rapid evolving communication technologies, media and platforms available to collaborate with converged audiences and channels. In this sense, it is the only academic department of its kind locally, founded in the post-modern approach to communication, called Strategic Communication. Graduates therefore benefit from a holistic approach to brand management while simultaneously benefitting from an omni-channel, 360 degree approach to brand strategies in order to engage with fragmented, yet always-on stakeholders in a complex and dynamic environment.
