Over the eighteen years since our establishment, we have developed a system of mentorship that appeals to how creative types learn, process information, think and develop ideas into reality.
Our students are coached by faculty members who are all well-qualified in their fields and with long mileage of practice background. Such a combination has enabled us to consistently ensure our courses are kept updated. Our inspiration is to achieve a level of excellence whereby our graduates will be able to think critically and be the moving force of change across a wide range of creative disciplines.
The School of the Arts was a constituent of the Humanities School. In 1999, we gained full-fledged status as an independent entity within the whole setup of Universiti Sains Malaysia.
This mandate, on its own accord, posed a challenge in charting our own direction. As a result, we have been conducting our own courses and awarded graduate and post-graduate degrees. We do focus on imparting knowledge, nurturing talent, and developing skill about arts, design, media, music, and performance with a cross-disciplinary approach. The distance we have traveled thus far is very much linked to our lecturers and supporting staff.
Our staff is an integral part of all that we have achieved. They have extensive practical backgrounds and exposure in the industry. They help reinforce professional relationships, and consequently, they link the school with the reality of the industry. This has enabled us to consistently ensure our courses are kept updated. The core of our aspiration is to achieve a level of excellence whereby our students will be able to think critically and at the same time, will be capable of applying their knowledge and skills across a wide range of creative disciplines as true professionals. Concerning this, we have vigorously worked to mold our students to be the moving force of change in the ever-progressing creative world, especially in this time of rapid convergence of technology and time-based media.
