Problem solving, critical thinking and innovation are now the top three skills employers look for and these vital skills can be applied to a wide range of commercial organisations. The first degree of its kind, our Bachelor of Creative Industries (BCI) allows you to develop your own creative niche by providing diverse knowledge, creativity and practical skills across a range of selected creative disciplines. The Bachelor of Creative Industries can help you to develop your own creative niche across a range of majors, with the agility you need to keep creating, adapting and innovating as the world continues to evolve.
The core of the program centres on Creative Enterprise studios that offer authentic, problem-based activities, coupled with work integrated learning, skills in entrepreneurship and commercial links that engage in creative start-ups. Early in your degree, you choose 24 credit points of introductory units to experience your preferred majors, with the option to undertake defined breadth units in other relevant areas. Using this experience, you then decide upon a creative industries major, and from there you may select a second major to develop a significant depth of knowledge and skill in two discipline areas. Alternatively, you might prefer to develop a wide breath of knowledge across several discipline areas by adding minors and unit options (electives) to your chosen creative industries major.
