Bachelor of Creative Arts and Community Wellbeing
University of Southern Queensland - Toowoomba

Course outline

Want to be a part of one of the fastest growing industries in Australia? The social assistance industries (those that help people to be healthy and productive) are due to expand at double the pace of all other industries over the next five years. The skills areas predicted to grow most are care providers and creatives. Be prepared by enrolling in the Bachelor of Creative Arts and Community Wellbeing at USQ. This degree will grow your creativity, facilitation/leadership skills, and understanding of the needs of community care and development. Specialise in either music, theatre, or visual art and learn how your creative practice can engage positively with communities to build resilience, capacity, and cohesion. At present when health providers, local governments, and community organisations seek to undertake arts-led service initiatives to assist their clients or residents it is difficult for them to find the right people to undertake the work. Graduates of this degree will have the necessary skills, along with the desire to help others, that these organisations are looking for. For more information, visit Bachelor of Creative Arts and Community Wellbeing at UniSQ.
