Dean's Welcome

Professor Lyndon Anderson, Dean - Faculty of Arts and Design 
A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITY AT YOUR FEET

At the University of Canberra Faculty of Arts & Design, all our courses are designed to ensure that you graduate ready to launch straight into an exciting and successful career. It won't just be your professional knowledge that will impress potential employers either. You can be sure that your skills in critical and creative thinking, communication, teamwork and ethical practice will be just as impressive.

This is an exciting time to be a student of our Faculty. Our programs are continually being refined and made even more globally relevant. We have attracted a number of internationally renowned and award winning academics who will influence the learning of our students, ensuring that your degree encompasses the latest information and research from around the world.


We pride ourselves on our international student mobility program, which provides students with the opportunity to study a part of your degree at one of our international partner universities.


As a student of the Faculty of Arts and Design, you'll select from a range of flexible options in first year, to complement your studies in your chosen degree. You'll then build on your knowledge in second year through a focus on practical, professional and conceptual studies. Finally, you'll refine your knowledge in third year through internships, other work integrated learning opportunities and, in most cases, through completing capstone studies where you produce a major piece of work on a topic of your choice.


For those interested in further studies, we offer postgraduate courses at honours level, postgraduate coursework and postgraduate research levels right across our disciplines. Our well-equipped studios and laboratories make learning an interesting and enjoyable experience; while our flexible programs help you build the knowledge and experience best suited to your particular interests and aspirations.


Work integrated learning will be an important part of your course, giving you hands-on, real-life experience in the industries you plan to enter when you graduate.


I invite you to explore our website and consider all the different courses available to you. I am confident you'll see why the University of Canberra is the place to break into a course that's perfect for you.
