School of Humanities and Communication Arts


Welcome to the School of Humanities and Communication Arts at the University of Western Sydney.

The School offers both undergraduate and postgraduate programs, including research programs, in the following broad disciplinary fields: arts, communication, convergent media, design (visual communication), humanities, interpreting and translation, languages, music, and creative music therapy. Innovative subjects focus on contemporary debates, perspectives, methods and technologies. To support these disciplines, the School manages a broad technical infrastructure.

The School attaches priority to developing strategies to enhance the relationship between teaching and research. We particularly pride ourselves on a commitment to developing graduates in areas where local needs are significant and growing rapidly.

The School is located across the Bankstown, Parramatta, and Penrith campuses of the University.
