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.
Our current research projects include;
Visual Arts graduate Katie West is one of only 14 artists from across Australia to be selected for the Kickstart Program for the NEXT WAVE festival.
Professor Quentin Beresford is the author of a new book which examines the rapid rise and unexpected collapse of Australia’s largest timber company and one of the nation’s most controversial corporations.
It’s never too late to follow your dreams. Just ask Eileen Whitehead, who will soon graduate from ECU with a Doctor of Philosophy just a week shy of her 74th birthday.
