Study creative industries at Griffith
Creative Collaboration Labs with industry
You will take part in a series of Creative Collaboration Labs that will equip you with a knowledge of artistic trends, popular and artistic culture, and the cultural policy environment, and then apply this knowledge to practical projects with high profile industry partners.
Focus on entrepreneurship
Thinking like a ‘creative startup’ runs deep throughout this degree with a focus on turning creative ideas into a thriving business. From first year you’ll engage with entrepreneurial concepts and develop skills and knowledge associated with starting and growing an artistic enterprise.
You’ll gain the skills to identify and develop creative arts ventures, from concept to reality and gain confidence to move forward with your own future aspirations and career.
Majors on offer
Digital art has revolutionised the way art can be made, distributed and viewed. Beyond virtual and augmented reality, you will learn to create mixed reality experiences that combine virtual physical worlds, and truly push the boundaries of interactivity.
Through a collaborative and practical approach, you will explore the elements of vocal, movement and stagecraft skills and learn about contemporary theatre, theatre direction, as well as using drama for social action.
Develop your skills to write, create and publish, in a constantly changing industry. You will explore aspects of creative processes across genres including short fiction, poetry, experimental, and editing for publication.
Through studio practice, master the techniques of digital and analogue photography. You will also develop visual storytelling skills through understanding of lighting, the moving image and other experimental techniques.
Screen development and curation
This major explores the impact of culture on screen events and production. You will learn script writing skills in a range of genres and consider the cultural contexts and business models behind how they are financed, realised, and shown to audiences.
Music and Sound
Sound plays a crucial role in creating an effect or mood on screen. In this major you will learn about the moving image and soundscape design, location recording and custom sound, across disciplines including film, television, theatre and live performance
