Art and Design

Art and Design degrees involve much more than putting pencil to paper. This group of disciplines will enable students to merge their creativity alongside the knowledge gained from studying theories, design principles, and methods to bring more beauty into the world.

Studying Art and Design will enable you to explore different forms and experiment with various mediums to develop projects, designs, and concepts for anything. Your artistic expressions will know no bounds, from paintings, buildings, dance, and theatre to fashion and graphic interfaces. Obtaining a degree in Arts and Design will open the doors to many career opportunities.
