Fine Art and Business - F2007

This globally relevant double degree responds to the increasing demand for professionals in the creative and cultural arts sector who have specialised knowledge and understanding of the art world combined with excellent business skills.

Co-located with the nationally significant Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA), you’ll work with some of Australia’s most successful artists, art theorists and cultural commentators. Combined with a choice of 10 business majors you’ll gain a broad understanding of business in areas like management, marketing, accounting and more.

This course leads to two separate degrees. Depending upon your specialisation, you will be awarded one of:

  • Bachelor of Art History and Curating, or
  • Bachelor of Fine Art

and

  • 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 or to combine the two in your chosen work.

If you choose the Art History and Curating specialisation, you’ll develop your understanding and appreciation of art including its origins and significance. You’ll gain hands-on experience developing an exhibition concept and internship opportunities will develop your curating skills in ‘real-life’ situations.

Alternately, if you choose the Fine Art specialisation, 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 the business part of your studies, you'll gain a broad understanding of the skills and knowledge required in business and with 10 different business majors to choose from including accounting, marketing, management and many more you'll be able to explore your interest.

Through this study, you’ll develop a broad base of knowledge that sets you up for a career in Australia or abroad.
