Creativity helps to make sense of our world by broadening our experience and understanding. The creative subjects enable us to imagine the unimaginable, connecting us to the past, the present, and the future, sometimes simultaneously. Creative subjects are an excellent choice for a growing number of students, with the surge in demand for graphic designers, digital illustrators, multimedia artists, animation and many other digital careers.

We place an emphasis on developing life-long skills such as analytical thinking, clarity in written and spoken expression, collaboration, and creativity. These skills are valuable in any career and can especially be developed through the arts.
