The Faculty of Applied and Creative Arts

The Faculty of Applied and Creative Arts (FACA) was established in 1994 based on the university’s mission of becoming an internationally recognized institution of higher learning and the main choice among students and academicians via excellence in teaching, research and scholarship.

The Faculty

Know Us Better...

In order to fulfill this mission FACA recognises the importance of technology and management skills in exploring creativity, through programs such as Fine Arts, Design Technology, Arts Management, Music, Cinematography and Drama & Theater towards the degree of Bachelor of Applied and Creative Arts. The faculty aims to produce graduates who can promote professional artistic growth in a dynamic and diverse work environment. Towards equipping students with fundamental skills and discipline to create and to explore creative ideas, it is the faculty’s objective to integrate the use of art, technology and management to enhance curriculum integration based on the concept of amalgamated education and cross disciplines.

Partners & Collaborations

The knowledge discovery initiatives at UNIMAs are premised partly upon the wealth of natural resources and diverse socio- cultural make-up of the state of Sarawak. While UNIMAS is strong in biodiversity study, this and most of other research activities are firmly based on contemporary technologies.

The cultural diversity and social uniqueness of Sarawak communities offer opportunities for studies in health and medicine, by offering a look at the influence of environmental factors and socio-cultural practices on the interactions of various pathogens, as well as other issues related to community health.

UNIMAS' strength in research is acknowledged by peers in their niche areas which contributes to 15 International & 25 International Strategic Partnerships from 10 Countries. Interested peers could view more from our current active MoU/MoA page.
