About this course

Ready to turn your passion for art into your career? The Bachelor of Creative Arts will help you achieve your dream. Music In this course you will develop skills and knowledge in musical areas such as piano, voice production and guitar in two specialised areas, classical music or contemporary music. A third study area also offers a combination of the two meaning you can experiment with both genres. You will have opportunities to participate in community projects with our partners, the Darwin Symphony Orchestra (DSO), the Darwin Festival and the Centre for Youth and Community Music (CYCM). If you are interested in studying the Music major, we recommend you possess Grade 4 Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) Practical and Theory. Contact the College of Indigenous Futures, Arts and Society after applying for auditioning. Screen and New Media Production Your studies focus on screen industry craft, knowledge and skills in film, television, digital media production and new media design projects. You will develop your skills and knowledge in conceptual, theoretical and historical understanding and apply it to a broad range of screen and new media design projects. With access to digital media production hardware, facilities and the latest industry software, you are exposed to professional practices, processes and protocols. You will build a valuable portfolio of creative work and will also be encouraged to get practical industry practice, while you study. Visual Arts In this course, you will develop practical skills and knowledge in-studio and in key areas in painting, printmaking, digital media, sculpture and drawing, developing the critical tools and material skills necessary to build your art career. You will learn alongside practising artists and leaders in the creative industry, plus you will be exposed to the local art community with opportunities to network with artists through the Northern Editions and the CDU Art Gallery and Collection.
