The Bachelor of Fine Arts/Education will prepare you for a professional role as a specialist secondary-school visual arts educator. Our graduates also work in the broader creative community, such as in museums, galleries and community organisations.
Along with the theoretical aspects of education, we place great importance on practical experience.
In your final two years, you will develop skills in classroom competence and spend up to 80 days in supervised teaching in at least two secondary-school contexts.
The Bachelor of Fine Art has two distinct majors available, so you will choose to focus on either Studio Practice or Art Theory.
