Education and Fine Art - D3006
Bachelor degree (honours)/Bachelor degree
Do you want to share your artistic passion and creativity with children and young people? If so, this double degree course is for you.
It will prepare you either for primary or secondary school teaching. Students specialising in secondary education will qualify as specialist art teachers, while students specialising in primary education will be qualified to teach across the school curriculum but with particular expertise in art.
In addition to being eligible to seek employment in schools, this combination will enable you to seek opportunities in the creative arts world where an understanding of learning and development is relevant, perhaps in community cultural programs, museums and galleries or therapeutic settings.
This course leads to two separate degrees. Depending upon your specialisation, you will be awarded one of:
- the Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Primary Education, or
- the Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Secondary Education,
- the Bachelor of Visual Arts.
You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Education (Honours)/Bachelor of Fine Art) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either education or the visual arts professions separately.
You will investigate the broader function of the visual arts in society today, learn from active visual-art practitioners and develop your own skills and creativity as you rotate through a range of workshops including painting, printmaking, photography and sculpture.
Education study complements this with the knowledge and skills of how young people learn and are taught both generally and within the visual arts. Taken together they open up a wide range of career opportunities.
