Visual Arts - unit set code MJ-A000015

The Visual Arts major will appeal to students who are interested in careers across a variety of traditional media including painting, drawing or 3D modelling and new technologies including digital/photo imaging and computer-generated prints. A broad based course structure enables students to overlap disciplines to develop individual vision and expression by exploring the aesthetic, formal and social concerns of visual communication.

On successful completion of the Visual Arts major sequence, students should have the following skills:

  • an ability to produce a conceptually, formally and thematically coherent body of work of exhibition standard
  • an ability to identify a professional niche in the art industry and a preparedness to enter that industry
  • an ability to negotiate the marketplace and develop productive working relationships with galleries, professional organisations and funding bodies; and
  • an ability to position their own work in relation to their field of research
