A practice-based visual arts major offering focused investigation across a range of two and three-dimensional studios including drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture.
Through critical theory and potential cross-experimentation with existing studios such as glass, design, fashion, writing, film and video, animation, and photography, students are immersed within visual culture to develop hybrid and traditional approaches to their creative praxis. The major is complemented by a rigorous conceptual focus to enable the student to develop their professional studio practice through a contemporary and historic lens. Students develop the confidence to exhibit publicly and to identify career opportunities in teaching, curating, independent studio practice, and with private and public arts agencies and institutions. The major culminates in a significant public exhibition, which further enhances the emphasis placed on professional practice.

It's how we learned from QILT that we're Australia's top-ranked public university for undergraduate teaching quality and skills development.
We also learned from the Good Universities Guide that graduates have rated our teaching quality 5 stars for 12 years in a row.
