Master of accessible communication webinar

Date:
28 November 2017

Time:
7:00 pm - 7:45 pm


This webinar will provide background on the exciting and unique degree, the Master of Accessible Communication (MAC), that will be launched by Macquarie in 2018. The MAC is an interdisciplinary program that will prepare graduates to facilitate access to communication for any individual or group who is excluded fully or in part from a communication context for physical, circumstantial, linguistic or other reasons.

During the webinar we will look more closely at the concept of accessibility and how it ties in with inclusive design, as well as at the needs in society this degree will address.
