Course Information

Whether you are currently working or studying in the creative and cultural sector, or wish to develop an increased understanding of its contemporary issues and challenges, the interdisciplinary Graduate Diploma in Creative and Cultural Futures gives you the opportunity to futureproof your career in the rapidly changing cultural sector. Based in Canberra, with access to the city’s major cultural institutions and vibrant creative community, your experiential learning will be enriched and enlivened thanks to these close links and through research-led teaching from the Faculty’s internationally recognised Centre for Creative and Cultural Research.

Rather than focusing solely on current workplace needs, this diploma will expand your thinking around critical issues, such as access, audiences, impact, innovation and leadership, meaning you’ll be well-placed to take up positions of influence across a range of fields, including digital media arts, film production, community arts, creative writing, global studies, cultural policy and planning, heritage and conservation, and the galleries, libraries, archives, museums and records (GLAMR) sector. Progression from this course to the Master of Arts in Creative and Cultural Futures is available by enrolling in additional units.

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is a prominent feature of this course, with units containing team-based problem solving in real-life industry contexts, analysis of real-world case studies, and professional mentoring from industry and sector leaders. If you are already employed in the sector, you will be encouraged to use your past experiences to reflect on current industry practice, problems and issues.

Throughout your study, you will have unique behind-the-scenes access to cultural collections at Canberra-based institutions, with experiential learning of Indigenous cultural issues and creative and cultural practice. If you wish to access them, there will also be opportunities to partake in overseas study and international field trips during your time at UC.
