Develop the skills needed to thrive in an ever-changing global environment

As computers behave more like humans, the best way to prepare for a successful career is to master the skills that artificial intelligence never will, and that employers demand. LinkedIn’s research on the job skills most sought-after by employers in 2020 found that the four most-wanted “soft skills” were creativity, persuasion, collaboration and adaptability.

Studying humanities and languages at Griffith, you'll develop a deeper understanding of societies, cultures and people, and how to communicate effectively with them. You'll also have access to internships and practical experiences to enhance your skills and potential, and develop the confidence to not only adapt to change, but lead it.

'Griffith University taught me to innovate. Using purchasing decisions to advance gender equality is a new solution to a global issue. It also complements gender equality strategies within corporate, government and not-for-profit organisations. My communications and marketing has background has enabled Femeconomy to gain traction and build a community of change makers. I strive to inspire and create positive outcomes for the wider community, through activities that create change for good'

'My advice for prospective students wanting to study Communications is that it allows you to have a rewarding and diverse career. You can experience so many different industries that align to your purpose. You are continuously learning as the way we receive and use communication evolves. And, if you ever want to start your own business, you will develop skills that you definitely need to build your audience.'
