Fine Art and Media Communication - F2013
In this practice-led double degree you’ll gain a specialised knowledge of the art world combined with the literary and narrative skills of a media and industry savvy communication professional.
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.
In Media Communications you'll specialise in journalism, media, public relations or screen, learning from leading industry professionals to build your skills and knowledge as a creative and multi-skilled media specialist.
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
- Bachelor of Media Communication
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. You will also be able to undertake an internship to expand your network as part of the degree.
In Media Communication you can choose between four specialisations: journalism, media, public relations or screen. You’ll learn from leading industry professionals like television anchors and journalists, award-winning writers, producers and creative directors. You'll gain practical and work-ready skills and graduate ready to shape the future of contemporary art, media and communication.
This double degree is a practice-led course that will equip you with the skills to succeed in a creative and influential career as a curator and contemporary art specialist in the professional media and communication sector.
This degree will create a new generation of thinkers, future-driven artists and media communication professionals who will dare to create positive change across all endeavours and shape the future of contemporary art, media and communication.
