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;
An ECU artist has been recognised for her unique artwork at a prestigious national art exhibition.
A new exhibition at Spectrum Project Space will reunite three ECU alumni who have all gone on to forge successful careers as abstract painters.
Dr Tom Shannon will take audience members on a highly visual journey into the world of blockbuster movies, pop videos and advertisements.
