The Sarojini Naidu School of Arts & Communication started functioning from 1988-89 and offers Masters-level courses in Dance, Theatre Arts, Painting and Communication and Doctoral (Ph.D.) programmes in Communication, Theatre Arts, and Dance. Studying the arts also provides vital critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills that are increasingly sought after by employers. Technology’s dedicated Placement Team provides support to all of our students looking to integrate a placement within their university career on both undergraduate degrees and postgraduate masters programmes.
Having worked for 30 years supporting people who are deafblind, sensory impaired or who have communication support needs, we have learned that communication is a dynamic, free-flowing process in which all parties share equal responsibility. The EMAC curriculum offers concentrations in Digital Storytelling (Animation, Video, Game Design), Graphic Design, Interaction Design, Marketing Communication and Design, and Sound Design and Popular Culture.
Working across multiple platforms, genres and media, students develop sophisticated production skills in video, sound and digital media, and enhance their creative innovation in these areas. Most of the courses offered by the Arts and Communication Department satisfy requirements for a liberal arts degree.
Learners will identify areas of strength and areas where skills need to be further developed in order to meet the expectations of the industry. Students complete specified units of study in media and communications over four years and a major from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Table A subject areas which can be completed as a two or three year defined sequence of study.
As a pre-university program, ALC prepares students for further education in a broad variety of fields including: art history, cinema, communications, cultural studies, drama, education, humanities, international careers, journalism, languages, the liberal arts, linguistics, literature, translation and visual arts.
