LCI Melbourne’s Bachelor of Design Arts is a nationally recognised, government-accredited higher education degree. Students major in one of six creative disciplines – Communication Design; Fashion & Costume Design; Filmmaking & Photography; Graphic & Digital Design, Interior Design; or Visual Arts. They also sub-major in one other discipline, and undertake a range of foundational design subjects.
The Bachelor of Design Arts was developed in consultation with industry experts, ensuring students develop in-demand skills and expertise that make them an employer’s graduate of choice. The degree is tailor made to encourage students to explore their creativity, test their ideas in the real world, and benefit from the mentorship of teachers who are active in industry.
LCI Melbourne students hail from all over the state, the country and the world. Our international student body is growing, and we are connected to thousands of creative people studying the design arts with the LCI Education Network on five continents. This opens up unrivalled opportunities to travel and study abroad. Small class sizes allow the unique creative voice of each student to be heard.
Our four-storey heritage building in Collingwood has been thoughtfully transformed into a purpose-built creative campus for the hundreds of students enrolled in the Bachelor of Design Arts. From 19th century factory floor for Foy & Gibson – Melbourne’s first department store - to contemporary creative hub, the building now features a contemporary art gallery and modern studios where a new generation of designers can make their mark.
