This program features a hands-on, studio-based learning approach that provides depth of knowledge in your chosen study area. You collaborate with students and teaching staff from across disciplines to reflect industry practice, work on real-world projects briefed by real clients, and get career planning assistance to help you on your creative journey. With transdisciplinary project-driven capstone experiences in your final year, you are prepared for a highly professional and entrepreneurial approach to your creative practice. In the creative writing major, you work intensively in a number of areas including novels and short stories, creative non-fiction, poetry, corporate writing and editing, manuscript development, and new and emergent forms. You can also take complementary studies from creative industries or other faculties across the university.
