Studying Music and Creative Arts
Our degrees in music, visual arts and creative writing provide the backbone to a fulfilling career in the creative industries.
Want to experiment with your laptop, your voice, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards (or any other instrument), with other like-minded creatives? Are you a songwriter who needs access to state-of-the art recording and production facilities? Do you aspire to teach music and nurture the passion of young students in schools or establish your own teaching studio? The Bachelor of Contemporary Music is offered at the Lismore Northern Rivers campus and at Coomera (Gold Coast).
This degree has its origins in the heart of one the most creative regions in Australia, which has long been a place that national and international artists call home. It is a destination for artists who perform at major festivals and to record at some of the most iconic studios located in the region.
You can also choose to study Contemporary Music as a shared major in the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Business and Enterprise, Bachelor of Indigenous Knowledge or in the Bachelor of Psychological Science.
At Southern Cross University we're always looking for a better way to do things, that's why we created 'The Southern Cross Model'. By dividing the academic year into six-week terms, with a maximum of two subjects per term, students are better able to focus, dive deeply into the subject matter and really learn. The content is highly interactive, with real-world applications; and it leaves more time for the other things you love.
