Summary

Immerse yourself in a range of conceptual and practical approaches to fine art making, while gaining a sound knowledge of arts, social science and humanities in this unique double degree combination.

This highly relevant double degree is your stepping stone to a global career in the field of creative and cultural arts.

Co-located with the nationally significant Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA), you’ll work with some of Australia’s most successful artists, art theorists and cultural commentators.

With our Bachelor of Arts you can choose from 40 different major and minor areas of study, including languages, social studies, communications, politics, human rights, and international relations to develop an informed, critical awareness of the fields you're most passionate about.

Start of expanded content

This course leads to two separate degrees. Depending upon your specialisation, you will be awarded one of:

Bachelor of Art History and Curating, or
Bachelor of Fine Art

and

Bachelor of Arts.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.

If you choose the Art History and Curating specialisation, you’ll develop your understanding and appreciation of art including its origins and significance. You’ll gain hands-on experience developing an exhibition concept and internship opportunities will develop your curating skills in ‘real-life’ situations.

Alternately, if you choose the Fine Art specialisation, you'll learn in an experimental studio-based setting enabling you to explore and develop a broad range of art practices including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, jewellery, glass and printmaking, as well as studying video art, film, installation practices and 3D printing modelling for artists.

With our Bachelor of Arts you can choose from 40 different major and minor areas of study, including languages, social studies, communications, politics, human rights, and international relations to develop an informed, critical awareness of the fields you're most passionate about.

Through this study, you’ll develop a broad base of knowledge that sets you up for a career in Australia or abroad.
