How can I study creative arts?

The structure of my degree really appealed to me. I liked the flexibility of being able to pick and choose from such a large list of electives. There is a real focus on developing creative artists within their respective fields, and on providing them with connections to the Adelaide Festival through internships and other networking opportunities.
