Postgraduate Program in Community Relations

Having completed the graduate certificate, and currently working my way through the graduate diploma, I can attest to the value of exposure to the developmental theory and social science principles that are the foundation of sound community relations, as well as a growing understanding of the rapidly evolving, and highly challenging, international environment in which all resource developers now find themselves.

I would commend this program of study, and its multiple options, to all practitioners who are keen to develop their professional skills and to enhance their awareness of the issues that are both topical and evolving for the industry".
