Our double degrees offer the opportunity to extend your artistic skills whilst receiving a second degree in Arts, Business, Education or Information Technology in just four years. Double degrees offer valuable complementary knowledge and skills that can open doors in the creative economy.

This specialisation will expand your understanding of cultural production and provide you with an interdisciplinary approach to Visual Arts studies. It will complement and enhance your study in your companion degree:

  • Bachelor of Arts
  • Bachelor of Business
  • Bachelor of Education (Honours)
  • Bachelor of Information Technology

You will develop a critical awareness and understanding of artwork in its production, interpretation and presentation, and a sound knowledge of the theories and practices required for talented people to work professionally in and with the visual arts. In studio classes you will investigate the broader function of the visual arts in society today, learn from active visualart practitioners and develop your own skills and creativity. These classes rotate through a range of workshops including painting, printmaking, photography and sculpture. Studio units may be interdisciplinary, or focus on a particular medium or mode of practice.

You will be exposed to a range of studio and theoretical frameworks and discipline areas as a basis for individual as well as collaborative cultural research and production. You will engage with professional and research practices that apply the skills learnt in the studio units to a diverse range of public contexts.
