Curtin’s Faculty of Humanities has both a local and global focus, and offers a diverse range of bachelor degrees that are applied, creative and relevant to contemporary society. Our degrees place high value on sustainability and community development, embrace and celebrate digital futures as well as upholding the importance of the arts and creative industries. Our architecture, education, media, and art and design programs are recognized by QS as being within the top 150 in the world – an indication of our commitment to quality teaching and education.
At an undergraduate level, work integrated learning is a key component of the curriculum, integrating theory with practical, industry-engaged teaching. Together with global classroom models that facilitate collaboration with our partner universities worldwide, our innovative teaching methods are designed to produce graduates with the right skills, knowledge and experience they need to transform ideas and impact the world.
Master degrees by coursework are available to those with a bachelor degree qualification, or in some circumstances, to those who have significant work experience in a related area. These programs consist of a major project or research topic, supported by coursework units that provide discipline-specific knowledge and skills – a combination that ensures students develop the necessary expertise to advance their career. The range of programs is broad and includes architecture, urban planning, project management, sustainability, education and applied linguistics, international relations, human rights, media and communication, and applied design and art.
Higher degrees by research are also offered at master degree and doctorate levels. At Curtin, humanities research is applied and relevant, underpinned by strong partnerships with industry, business and government, which result in outcomes that benefit the local and global community.
