Creative Industries Courses

A creative degree that gets down to business.

Australia’s creative industries are a major driver of our economy, worth an estimated $30 billion and employing hundreds of thousands. If you’re thinking about a creative career, don’t let anyone tell you it isn’t a serious business.

Our newly offered Creative Industries degree is unique in NSW. It gives you the opportunity to combine your studies in Arts, Communication, Design and Music with courses in Business and Law.

In an evolving employment market, this extra savvy is a distinct advantage. There are also great creative degrees in Communication, Design (Visual Communication), Music and Screen Media.We also offer a Graphic Design/Pathway to Teaching (Secondary) degree. It’s your pathway to a Master of Teaching (Secondary), and a career as an inspiring high school teacher.

Postgraduates can take their careers to the next level with a range of degrees in Creative Industries, or a Master of Digital Humanities.
