The school offers a diverse and exciting mix of courses that are developed in consultation with industry groups and combine the latest theory with hands-on, practical experiences.
Spread across the university’s three campuses, the School of Arts and Humanities has one of the more diverse research programs at ECU. A variety of disciplines is evident across the School’s active research groups, including a focus on cognitive psychology, young people and the internet, motivation, resilience and creative research practices.
We’re committed to conducting research that has a strong social and cultural impact, while contributing to the vibrancy of the research culture at ECU. Collaborating with community, government and related industries, we aim to provide innovative research solutions. Encompassing staff and students from around the globe, we celebrate the diversity of perspectives and creativity that this brings.
