The Bachelor of Art Theory 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. As you investigate the social, cultural and political contexts for art, you will learn to develop and communicate powerful, incisive ideas. 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.
*Available for 2019 T3 intake only. From 2020 an Art Theory Major will be available as part of the Bachelor of Fine Arts.
