Bachelor of Fine Arts (13C)

Course Structure

In the Bachelor of Fine Arts, you need to choose a major, a minor, 4 degree electives and 8 student electives. The Art Theory minor is a compulsory minor for all students.

This degree consists of a total of 24 units comprising:
  • A major of 8 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate, 4 advanced units
  • A minor of 4 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate units
  • Four degree electives: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate or advanced units. Note: if you choose advanced level degree electives, you need to enrol in 2 student electives at intermediate level to meet the degree requirements of (a minimum of) 6 intermediate level units.
  • Eight student electives: units which may be chosen from this or any other subject area within the University, provided they meet the unit level requirements for the degree (see next point below), unit pre-requisites and quotas. You may take individual units or study up to the equivalent of a second major or a minor through your student electives and try out different subject areas - it's your choice.
  • Unit level requirements for the degree are: between 8-10 units at introductory level, 6-10 units at intermediate level and 6-10 units at advanced level. For example, this means you could study 8 introductory, 8 intermediate and 8 advanced, or you could take 8 introductory, 7 intermediate and 9 advanced units or other combinations within these ranges.

Student Electives

Student electives are your choice of available units from any study area across the University, provided you are eligible to enrol in them (i.e. meet any unit pre-requisites). You can take up to a second major or minor from the degree schedule through your student electives or the equivalent of a major or minor from a discipline area outside the degree schedule and try out different subjects – it’s your choice.

A wide range of Student Electives are available.
