Through forward-looking courses, cutting-edge research and a proven track record in growing the creative economy, QUT Creative Industries is leading the way nationally and internationally.
Located in the Creative Industries Precinct alongside research centres and creative enterprises, the QUT Creative Industries Faculty is not only training the creative workforce, but working with industry and government to grow the sector. Our connections to industry and the leading-edge research we conduct tell us that creativity has never been more valued by employers. As the benefits of creativity are recognised by multinational businesses, creative talents are increasingly in demand in a range of industries – not just traditional cultural institutions.
The Faculty’s academic programs include some of the highest-demand undergraduate courses at QUT. Specialist degrees across a range of creative study areas include the Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Journalism and Bachelor of Media and Communication degrees. Unique to QUT is the Bachelor of Creative Industries, which equips graduates with diverse knowledge, creativity and professional skills across a range of industries and practice.
Research at the Creative Industries Faculty is enhanced through our association with the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation. The Creative Industries Faculty is also the lead agency in the Institute for Creative Industries and Innovation (iCi), a multi-faculty research institute at QUT.
The open space that is on offer at the Creative Industries Precinct is a genial invitation for ideas to be shared, picked up, transmitted and boosted. Indeed the continuous intellectual buzz across and within knowledge and cultural boundaries has afforded an ideal breeding space for creativity and innovation. As crucial as the multiplicity of voices are world-class researchers who would go to great lengths to guide and mentor, and to encourage original thinking in research.
