The goal of the Diploma of Art and Creativity programme is to increase coherence and technical skills, develop a sound basis of your own creative processes and interests, sharpen personal focus (self-direction) and produce work in line with your own goals.

You select majors and minors from the available courses. Please note you can choose the same course for more than one major or minor. These choices determine how much of your time will be spent working on particular activities and what your outcomes should be. They will guide the classes you choose to attend and the resources you choose to engage with. You can read more about the courses, or subject areas, we offer here.

At Diploma level, whether in class, working from the video resources or working independently, you will be writing your own briefs for each major and minor course.

The Diploma programme is one year full-time (equivalent 30 hours per week), or two years part-time (equivalent 15 hours per week).
