Join a unique degree to extend your career options
If you love theatre, performance, creative writing, and making videos or films, but you want to ensure you have broader career prospects, the Bachelor of Communication (Expressive Arts) is for you.
Expressive Arts is unique in New Zealand and was created in response to student demand. As part of your study, you will be able to devise, direct and write theatre, creative writing and digital video productions.
Hands-on, relevant skills
The Bachelor of Communication (Expressive Arts) allows you to choose to learn from a range of hands-on skills in acting, managing productions, word smithing, scripting, storyboarding, and video filming and editing. You will also learn how these fit into the everyday activities of a professional communication practitioner and the leadership skills necessary to effectively manage people.
For example, you might produce a music video, or direct an experimental multi-media show based on your original script. You might be immersed in the techniques of improvisational theatre, including games and spontaneity activities. This is way of unlocking and managing your creativity across other media including creative writing. You might find yourself devising poetry or word-at-a-time stories with team members, or learning how your posture communicates a status instantly to others.
Choose the creative discipline you love
Students told us they wanted a little bit of theatre, or creative writing, or digital media production, or some combination of all three, but not necessarily to focus just on one. So we invented ‘expressive arts’. We call it the ‘triple dip’ major where you can add as much or as little as you like to your degree from any of the three creative discipline areas of theatre, creative writing, or digital media production. You choose what to emphasise, whether it’s one, two or all three of these areas.
Devise, direct and write
As part of your study in the Bachelor of Communication (Expressive Arts), you will be able to devise, direct, write and produce theatre, creative writing and/or digital video productions.
Major requirements: A major consists of 120 credits in Expressive Arts, including at least 60 credits at 300-level.
Surveys have shown that today’s employers seek graduates who are collaborative, creative and can communicate well. They want staff who can give compelling presentations, problem-solve creatively, think originally, analyse perceptively, communicate effectively (both in person and on paper) and work well in teams. Learn these skills through expressive arts. When combined with the communication and corporate skills that you learn through your Bachelor of Communication you will have a qualification that can be applied across an amazing range of roles.
Graduates with an expressive arts major are working today in government outreach, social media management, arts publicity, human resources, advertising, marketing and public relations, filmmaking, television and journalism, teaching, theatre and entertainment and creative and professional writing.
