Studying a double degree combination of Bachelor of Creative Arts and Bachelor of Arts offers a vibrant and progressive approach to learning. The Bachelor of Arts allows students to gain experience in analysing and synthesising complex ideas; skills that are essential in real-world problem solving and highly valuable to a wide range of employers. The Bachelor of Creative Arts supports students to develop their creative, practical and conceptual skills enabling them to join the creative industries, one of the fastest growing sectors in the world. UOW offers hands-on studio production with critical reflection, and practice-based subjects with theoretical analysis in study areas including creative writing, music, visual arts and visual arts and design. A double degree encompassing both the Creative and the Liberal Arts gives graduates the edge in a world that increasingly values flexibility and interdisciplinary knowledge. The practical learning undertaken in the creative arts is complemented by the interpretive and critical skills offered by study in the humanities, leading to employment in the public, private or non-for profit sectors and giving you an edge in the global marketplace.
