How articulate are you as an Artist, Designer, Digital Media practitioner, educator or administrator?

Built on a foundation of English for academic purposes, tailored to specific applications in the creative disciplines, this course will enable you to expand your vocabulary and engage with, interpret and express challenging and complex notions using an appropriate mix of communication strategies best suited to further postgraduate study.

This includes an appreciation of basic research protocols. You will enhance your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in English to construct coherent intellectual arguments and begin developing your own academic 'voice'. Collaboration in and out of class will use traditional communication approaches and emerging technologies as vehicles for meaningful cross-disciplinary interaction with colleagues, peers, professionals and the public in an articulate and scholarly manner that is informed by your theoretical and practice-based research, critical thinking and self-managed reflective practice.
