Expand your mind with new units at Rockingham June 4, 2013 Murdoch University’s Rockingham campus will soon host a variety of new units, taught by a suite of inspiring lecturers. From Semester 2, local students will benefit from the expertise of Professor Samuel Makinda, who will teach the Perspectives on Security and Terrorism unit. Professor Makinda is a highly regarded political scientist and journalist with vast experience in academia and government. In 2011, he was awarded Kenya’s highest civilian honour, the Elder of the Order of the Burning Spear. Creative Arts units will also be offered in Rockingham from Semester 2, allowing local students to see the world in a new way. "For the first time, Murdoch’s Photography and Digital Imaging unit will be available for local students, along with the popular Drawing unit," said Pro Vice Chancellor Professor Andrew Taggart. "These are practical, creative skills which can be applied in a number of ways, both in and out of the media industry." Those aspiring to a business career can now do so closer to home, with three new units offered locally. "Principles of Management and Principles of Marketing are a great starting point for those wanting to enter the corporate world. Knowledge of business practices is looked upon very favourably by employers," Professor Taggart said. "Accounting students can now also choose to enrol in an Internship Placement unit, giving them the chance to apply their knowledge within a local business." In addition, Murdoch’s Rockingham campus continues to offer units in Indigenous Studies, Psychology, Education, Tourism and Events Management.
