The School of Arts and Humanities offers an extensive portfolio of services to the community. Our initiatives are aimed at encouraging our students to embrace collaborations with industry and strive for integral engagement within society. We offer creative spaces to work in, online interactive projects, events and workshops, health related community services and educational programs that engage school aged children with the university and encourage aspirations for tertiary study.
The ECU Psychological Services Centre is the training clinic for postgraduate students studying Clinical and Clinical/Forensic Psychology at a Masters and Doctoral level. The clinic provides counselling, psychotherapeutic services and psychological assessments to members of the community.
Our school’s community of scholars have a deep involvement in education, research and creativity, providing an enriching experience for our students. We welcome innovative thinking and the expression of all creative outputs through various forms. Our Mount Lawley campus is currently home to two gallery and exhibition spaces, Spectrum Project Space and the new Gallery 25, which allows our staff and students to exhibit and workshop their ideas in the public sphere, interact with fellow artists and industry professionals whilst also expanding their knowledge and research outputs in a commercial environment.
The LabRats program is run by the ECU Engagement team during the Semester 2 mid-semester break, with students from Years 10 or 11 participating in a full-day of science lectures and workshops. The aim of the program is to encourage students to pursue science in upper school, and ultimately at a tertiary level.
As part of our commitment to engaging with our community, we run a variety of interactive and exciting short courses and workshops. Aimed at local high school students, these initiatives allow participants to be immersed in a creative environment, experience our state-of-the-art facilities and work with lectures who are industry professionals. We run weekend workshops in Visual Arts and Contemporary Fashion which encourage a hand-on immerse environment and are led by practising artists. Our week-long Short Courses for Credit Program in areas such as Broadcasting, Film and Video and Photomedia see participants receive a unit of credit upon completion, giving them a head start when they commence studies at ECU. These community engagement initiatives offer the chance to experience life at university and assist in forming a smooth transition between high school and tertiary study.
The STEPUP Peer Tutoring Program is an initiative placing high achieving university students into high schools located near the Mount Lawley and Joondalup Campuses of ECU. Our peer tutors volunteer their time and can run study groups or provide one-on-one assistance.
The ECU Engagement team conducts a series of WACE revision workshops each year that are designed to assist Year 12 students in their preparation for their final exams. The workshops have proven highly successful and are provided freely to all. Workshops are delivered by senior teachers with markers present at the sessions covering problem solving skills, exam hints, and demonstrations relevant to each subject. Students are given a booklet of worked examples as well as other helpful information. Workshops are run in the third term during school holidays.
