About

2016 sees the birth of a new School of Arts and Humanities at Edith Cowan University. One of the largest and most diverse schools of its kind in Australia, Arts and Humanities at ECU is committed to its vision of forming a community of scholars who will work together to improve the quality of our lives through a deep involvement in education, research and creativity.

Potential employers of our students are increasingly searching for graduates with proven critical, analytical and communication skills, graduates who are agile and who are able to adapt to a rapidly changing work environment within a growing globalised economy.  

To this end, the School now offers over sixty programs on all three campuses of ECU, including specialist and interdisciplinary courses in the arts, design, media and communications, psychology and criminology and the social sciences. Course structures allow open access to electives in all areas of the school to encourage multi skilling and to promote a broader understanding of how the arts and humanities play a central role in the social and cultural fabric of our society.

Research and creativity is central to our engagement with students, communities and employers, Arts-Hum therefore celebrates our dynamic and ongoing involvement in new knowledge and creative expression.
