About the Course

Artists and scientists approach creativity, exploration and research in different but increasingly connected ways and perspectives; when working together, they open up new ways of seeing, experiencing and interpreting the world around us.The Advanced Science component differs from the Bachelor of Science with the inclusion of advanced-level courses, an Honours year and options tailored to your aptitude and interests. In addition to foundation subjects such as biology, chemistry, physics and maths, you have access to more than 25 advanced fields of science. During your studies, you will develop the critical and analytical thinking needed for the successful completion of the research-based Honours year.Fine Arts components will encourage you to explore a wide range of artistic processes, techniques and media through theory and practice. With two distinct majors available, you will choose to focus on either Studio Practice, or Art Theory. Both pathways feature professional practice, research skills and opportunities for elective study, meaning you will be prepared for a diverse range of professional contexts.
