Fine Art and Business - F2007
Bachelor degree/Bachelor degree
Perhaps you would like to combine your interest in business operations with your artistic talent. Or perhaps you want to make your mark in the creative industries.
This double degree course is the only program of its kind in Victoria. It has been developed in response to the demand for arts administrators, artists and designers with first-class business skills.
You can expect to develop knowledge of the major business disciplines, together with theories and practices associated with a career in the visual arts. You will gain an understanding of their relationship, and have the business skills to support your creative endeavours.
This course leads to two separate degrees. You will be awarded both:
- the Bachelor of Visual Arts, and
- the Bachelor of Business.
You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately.
Combining the cultural awareness fostered in the Visual Arts alongside Business skills will allow you to creatively engage with management, marketing, accounting or international business. It will also offer greater insight into the production and professional presentation of artwork.
This combination could lead you to a career in arts administration, arts management, performing arts, publishing, or new media. You may become involved in the business aspects of art gallery management, the curating of corporate collections, art investment, cultural events for community, government and business sectors, and commercial art and design industry activities.
