Education and Fine Art - D3006
Do you want to share your artistic passion and creativity with children and young people? If so, this double degree course is for you.
This double degree course 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:
- Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Primary Education, or
- Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Secondary Education,
- Bachelor of Fine Art.
You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.
In Fine Art, you'll learn in an experimental studio-based setting enabling you to explore and develop a broad range of art practices including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, jewellery, glass and printmaking, as well as studying video art, film, installation practices and 3D printing modelling for artists.
In Education you'll develop the knowledge and skills of how young people learn and are taught both generally and within the fine arts. Taken together they open up a wide range of career opportunities.
Arts educator, primary or secondary school teacher, art administration, education and arts policy and planning, cultural events management, gallery or museum education management, training and development in private or public organisations, education outreach roles, consultancy, entertainment industry roles, education learning designer.
