This course contains two pathways designed to assist students to develop the critical tools and material skills necessary to build professional careers in the visual arts as artists and theorists. The studio and theoretical teaching staff are augmented by a vibrant visiting forum of guest speakers and together with our partnership with Northern Editions and the CDU Art Gallery and Collection provide an exciting and stimulating learning environment.
The Studio Practice specialisation is a contextual studio-based programme which provides students with the opportunity to specialise in digital media, painting, printmaking, sculpture and/or drawing, or to combine any media in their studio productions.
The Bachelor of Creative Arts and Industries (Visual Arts) is part of a suite of professional creative courses for the cultural industries which enable students to also take suites of study from the creative study options in Music, New Media Design and Communications. Within each of these discipline pathways, there are alternative study plans that allow a student to explore a particular strength.
The Bachelor of Creative Arts and Industries (Honours) is available for entry to suitable candidates with a Bachelor of Creative Arts and Industries (Visual Arts).
