School of Creative Industries

Our School


The University of Newcastle has earned a strong reputation for delivering quality programs in the areas of creative and performing arts, communication, digital media, natural history illustration, visual design and music. In 2017, we officially launched the fusion of all of the University of Newcastle's creative disciplines to form the School of Creative Industries.


We collaborate with our partners across the spectrum of creative professions to drive innovations that contribute to the cultural and economic transformation of our regions. Our degrees prepare graduates to expand their creative talents and develop hands-on skills that are relevant and in demand across the creative industries.

Campus Locations

Our degrees are offered across four of the University's campus locations, including several creative venues within UON's city precinct, located in the Newcastle CBD cultural hub. As detailed in the SOCI Facilities page, students enjoy various dedicated spaces, including a brand new Innovation Hub as well as collaborative and learning spaces within the University's NeW Space precinct in the heart of the CBD.
