Summary

The Master of Visual Arts is an interdisciplinary research degree for creative professionals.

This postgraduate art and design degree is highly flexible and caters for visual arts graduates and students from a variety of other creative backgrounds. You can tailor your studies to suit your art practice and professional interests.

You'll work within our supportive visual arts studio environment where you'll be involved in group discussions and critique of each other’s work. You have access to individual studio spaces, supervisory support and well-equipped specialist art and design facilities. Your design research will contribute to diverse and emerging dialogues around visual arts and creative practice.

As part of this programme you complete a 120-point thesis, which can be either a practice-based or a more theoretical research project in an area of visual arts. You also develop an understanding of research methods and ethics, and complete a number of elective courses.
