The School of Communications and Arts is for students who want to discover and pursue their true passion.
We have a diverse range of programs in communications, media, design, arts and the humanities. As a result, we are one of the largest and most comprehensive schools of this kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
We aim to maximise your employability by giving you hands-on skills, professional placement experiences, and a solid theoretical background. Multi-skilling is expected in many arts and communications industries and our course structures allow you to gain expertise in multiple areas.
The School of Communications and Arts actively participates in a range of research projects dedicated to collaborating with the media, communications, technology and creative industries to local community, government and industry groups.
