The ability to shape our collective understanding of who we are is a powerful skill to have. You could create content that sets trends, report on issues that are important to you, or use your creative talents to tell a story that moves and entertains. Be it a headline, byline or signature, UOW will help you make your mark.
Enrich & inform culture
How will you enrich & inform culture?
Do you have a story to tell? Maybe you aspire to have your presence felt, and your voice heard? Would you like to create memorable art or content that moves, influences and entertains people? Study in the creative arts at UOW could be just the begining.
Are you interested in revealing the human stories behind current events? Would you like to keep people informed about events that impact their lives? Do you have an interest in telling stories that move people? Consider communications and media at UOW.
Would you like to use trends in pop culture to reach and influence others? Or use your creative talents to create memorable ads that move others to action? Consider marketing or a double degree in communications when you study business at UOW.
Would you like to understand the role that language plays in our perception of each other? Or would you like to explore literary culture to understand where we’ve come from, so that we might see a better path ahead? Consider study in literature and languages at UOW.
I chose Creative Arts mainly for the theatre aspect, I wanted to get into acting and I wanted to figure out what it was like to share stories and learn empathy though other people's stories as well. My passion is to empower other younger Indigenous students and enable a stronger platform so they can feel strength in their identity.
Stories to inspire you
Seeing the difference one person could make – and the power of journalism to amplify those stories – helped Matthews realise she had chosen the right career path. Matthews is now a reporter and news presenter with Triple J and she has worked on many more notable stories.
“No one will give you what you want; you have to go out there and earn it yourself. Sometimes that means you need to be creative in your approach”. Dean Martelozzo is diligent & determined, whether it’s the focus and discipline to power through daily work challenges or the drive to chase the big dreams.
“That’s my end goal: to be a creative so renowned in my field that head-hunters seek me out." Move over Mad Men – the next Don Draper is coming and she’s a woman. Mikayla Dennelly has trained her sights on setting the advertising world on fire, and she has the ambition, energy and drive to do just that.
We look back at the hopes and dreams of UOW students from 2008 and ask: where are they now? Back in 2008, Ryan shared his dreams of working for a top graphic design studio and, well, he’s doing exactly that.
