Marketing Communication 3A

SCM3AA3

NQF level: 7

NQF credits: 22

Content:

The module deals with the concept of Strategic Communication and the unpacking of the disciplinary landscape. The current landscape is characterised by complexity and chaos and requires that organisations function within non-linear, unpredictable and uncertain environments. This has led to current thinking that diminishes the significance of compartmentalised structures, functions, processes and roles and favors a converging integrative framework that places emphasis on a shift towards post-modern communication and more specifically Strategic Communication. In light of this, the module focuses on the philosophical, theoretical and methodological assumptions that surround the contemporary view of strategic communication.



Purpose:

This module is designed to facilitate the development of certain critical outcomes with regard to competence in Strategic Communication. These outcomes include providing the student with theoretical competence through a sound grounding in fundamental strategic communication theory. It is also aimed at providing you with applied competence through the acquisition of the practical skills that are required to apply theoretical knowledge to different strategic communication contexts.

Upon completion of this module learners should be able to:



  • Deconstruct the broad concept of Strategic Communication into its constitutive parts and demonstrate an understanding of theories that are relevant to Strategic Communication.
