Overview

This program integrates a grounding in contemporary media with an integrated and flexible approach to studying creative arts disciplines. The structural flexibility of the Bachelor of Creative Arts allied with the strong theoretical and applied grounding of the Bachelor of Media provides graduates with both a broad-ranging set of skills and knowledges and a focused understanding of their field or fields of creative practice. Courses in the Bachelor of Creative Arts allow students to develop practical skills in creative production and develop analytical and evaluative skills in reflection. The core courses in the degree offer students the opportunity to think deeply about creativity as a process and creative arts as individual disciplines. The Bachelor of Media provides students with a thorough understanding of contemporary media and how this complex industry is rapidly evolving under the influence of changing technologies and the different needs of societies around the world. Both core courses and Media Closed Electives provide opportunities for students to direct their learning towards specific sectors of media industries or to take a more wide-ranging  approach to studying media. Capstone courses in both degrees provide opportunities for students to bridge the worlds of university and work by exploring ideas, developing skills and learning how to make a career in the worlds of art and/or media. The double degree contains opportunities for work integrated learning (internships), international exchange, practice led research and developing professional relationships with working creative artists.
