Overview

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Fine Art

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 the 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.

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.

In the art history and curating specialisation, these will come together through an internship and a final research project

In the fine art specialisations, these will come together during the final two studio units in the third year of the course. In both specialisations, final projects will be exhibited in the graduand exhibition.

With the Bachelor of Arts you can choose from 40 different major and minor areas of study, including: 

Arts Majors:

  • Anthropology
  • Chinese studies
  • Communications and media studies
  • Criminology
  • Economics
  • Film and screen studies
