About the Centre for Creative Arts & Media (CCAM) 

Overview

Students interested in being part of a global transformation using creativity and innovation are drawn to our courses in Creative Arts and Media. Located on the Monivea road in Galway city, we use a hands on learning approach at Centre for the Creative Arts and Media (CCAM). We offer hours of practical work and studio engagement, encouraging students to explore their creative side, enabling them to carve their own path in the inventive industries.   

Unique in the Irish educational landscape, CCAM offers undergraduate studies for a host of courses in a vibrant community of learning and exchange. Showcasing a highly collaborative learning environment, equipped with film editing suites, computer labs and other essential workspaces, classes are delivered by expert staff who are passionate about their research and profession.  

Enrolling in a course in the creative arts and media can be life-enhancing and is invaluable in stimulating creative thinking and promoting adaptability. With room to explore and engage, attempts at artistic expression are valued, spontaneity and risk taking encouraged, self esteem is enhanced and differences celebrated. Arts education is integral to education, in helping provoke discussion, enhance imaginations, embrace thinking and sensitivity to a range of topics, and can be a focus for social and cultural development for third level students. 

Awards and accolades are gathered and achieved year on year by learners, lecturers and graduates, paving the way for leadership in the worlds of Art, Television and Film, all reinforcing the fact that CCAM is indeed an exceptional place to study.
