School of Arts


A warm welcome to the School of Arts and disciplines of the Arts and Humanities. Our School provides teaching and research focused on understanding the human condition, the unique ways we experience the world and the different forms of culture manifested from our ingenuity, imagination, resourcefulness and intellectual creativity.

The disciplines that make up the School of Arts are united in their focus on the intrinsic value of the arts (how it enriches lives) and the civilising role of culture in order to prepare our graduates to contribute to the wider and measurable impact of the arts on our economy, health and wellbeing, society and education. Our students learn and apply the power of language, literature, screens, music, movement and performance. In doing so, students develop communication skills, creative and design practices that express ideas, develop concepts and promote services.
