At ECU we’ve developed an Arts course that prepares graduates with the skills needed to adapt to future workforces, whatever they may be.
Arts graduates are highly employable and have an impact across our communities in many ways. They have strong critical, creative, practical and ethical skills that are highly adaptable within our increasingly diversified workplaces. So when you study a Bachelor of Arts, you’ll experience a dynamic, creative and critical immersion in culture, history and politics. It’s a transformative experience that’s both interdisciplinary and empowering. The course allows you to choose between disciplines including Visual Arts, Creative and Professional Writing, English, or Historical and Political Studies. Most importantly, you’ll be interacting with and learning from our dynamic staff who are accomplished artists and published writers of national and international standing and passionate about culture, politics and teaching.
