Undergraduate Degree Program - Bachelor of Visual Arts:
- The Bachelor of Visual Arts (BVA) is three-year undergraduate degree program for those wishing to establish a practice in the contemporary visual arts, with the option of an honours degree also available.
First Year (Foundation Year): The Foundation Year of the BVA is a vibrant mixture of interdisciplinary and studio specific subjects that develop students theoretical and critical awareness of contemporary art practice and expand their ideas and concepts about their work. In this program students learn about appropriate materials and methods for their work and develop the technical skills required to make and document it successfully.
The interdisciplinary subjects are the main focus of the program and include Foundation Concepts and Artists Research Workshops (Research A and B), a Drawing program (Computer, Experimental and Life/Observational) and Theories of Art Practice. Studio discipline specific subjects from semester one onwards include time each week in the student's chosen Studio major and a Studio theory class.
In the foundation concepts program, each student will consider the themes of Time Space and Light through a program of 3 six week blocks over first and second semester. The final block will be focused on increased studio classes prior to movement into 2nd year.
Second & Third Year: Expands the understanding of visual arts through studio based practice and studio and core theory subjects. Students undertake specialist study in a single studio and develop their art practice through structured group and self directed projects. Students may also choose a broader interdisciplinary study within the faculty or other parts of the University.
The Theories of Art Practice program provides a theoretical and historical understanding of contemporary art practice and encourage students can place their own studio practice in context.
* Honours Degree Program: For students who have completed three years of an undergraduate visual arts degree, the honours program is a one-year research-intensive program that consolidates professional practice and prepares students for further research study.
