The Bachelor of Visual Arts is a three-year full-time degree in which students major in any one of the disciplines offered by the School's Workshops.
In first year, full time students enrol in four 6 unit courses in each of the two semesters: Major Study, two Core courses and a Art Theory course. In subsequent years three courses are taken every semester: a 12 unit Major Study and a 6 unit Complementary Studies course and a 6 unit Art Theory course.
Art Theory courses are chosen from a changing menu of offerings each semester, while Complementary Studies courses cover various aspects of visual art practice including the use of new technologies such as computer-based design and multimedia applications. Comp Studies can also involve additional Art Theory courses or studies in other Workshop areas.
