Overview

The Art Theory component of this double degree is designed for those looking to develop the intellectual and critical skills to make an impact in the arts and cultural sector. Through both structured and flexible learning pathways, the degree will help you analyse the complex ways that art reflects and influences society.

The degree is grounded in the fundamentals of art history and theory, allowing you to engage with fields such as Australian Indigenous art, global contemporary art, new media, performance art and museum studies. Our instructors are leading experts in their fields who offer a dynamic and rewarding learning experience.

In the Arts component, you will choose a major and minor from a range of disciplines within the humanities and social sciences. In whichever area you choose to study, you will develop transferable skills and in-depth knowledge, and gain the tools to think critically, communicate effectively and conduct independent research.
