Design & Arts
We don’t teach creativity. We won’t instill talent. You already have those in you. What we only need to do is light you up.
The School of Design and Arts (SDA) offers a wide scope of degree programs in specialized creative disciplines that meet the demands of today’s information driven world.
Its campus, a 14-storey academic complex, is one big playground for creative minds and a venue that stimulates students to think out of the box, shift perspectives, and innovate ideas.
As prerequisite to their major design subjects, students undergo art exposure and exploration with accomplished artists and scholars of the Design Foundation program.
Hands on, unconventional approaches to meaningful projects allow young creatives to enhance their visual vocabulary, conceptualization and creation skills to prepare them for their major subjects.
SDA houses exhibition spaces and studio facilities which enhance students’ hands-on experience.
Standing out with its cantilevered façade, the SDA Theater has the latest lighting and sound equipment for performances and productions. The Black Box is a studio which provides a setting ideal for experimental shows and theater productions. The Green Room allows students to later superimpose shot images over different backgrounds. The SDA Cinema is a site for cultural immersion and classroom instruction where Digital Filmmaking students showcase and present their works for review.
