If you're creative, logical, have great communication skills and want a successful career that uses your imagination and lets you think outside the box, a career in Communication and Creative Industries is perfect for you. CSU offers an environment where creative people come together to explore their passions and unleash their creative potential. There are some great opportunities for you to work closely with students from related courses and get involved in all aspects of bringing a story to life on stage, in a studio, or on screen, in print and multimedia and you'll gain real production experience right from the start of your course.
Once you have spent some time in the industry, you can maximise your career opportunities through postgraduate study or pursue academic avenues by undertaking your own research project, such as an exhibition, published book or a number of other creative endeavours
Theatre and television designers create the world in which a play or scene takes place by interpreting a text and bringing it to life. Designers are responsible for the visual concept of a film, television or theatre production and work closely with the director or producer.
If you are fascinated by costume or settings, have an eye for locations and lighting, or can hear the perfect sound for the show, then a career designing for theatre and television could be for you. Our students can choose to selectively focus on a particular design element and medium or maintain a broad range of knowledge and skills. You can even choose to specialise in either television or theatre design, although there may be some overlap.
