Academic programmes

 

The Department of Visual Arts is recognised for its academic and creative excellence. It strives to be inclusive, enabling, socially responsible and value-driven, always acknowledging its mandate to be relevant to the wider community. Moreover, the Department aims to be a leading visual arts department, acknowledged as the department of choice by its students, graduates, employers and peers. It seeks to function as a model multidisciplinary department that fosters a creative, intellectual, professional, critical and reflective climate for its staff and students.

The Department of Visual Arts’ three divisions – Fine Arts, Information Design and Visual Studies – play key strategic roles in shaping knowledgeable, responsible, independent and innovative citizens. Its purpose is therefore to train and educate students who can contribute meaningfully to society. Driven by humanistic and intellectual imperatives, the Department provides an environment where students can learn and grow to contribute to the well-being of the broader community and where staff can become leaders in their respective fields. Each of the Department’s divisions seeks to attain these outcomes by means of focused research strategies, encouraging both individuality and communal responsibility.
