Master of Visual Arts

The Master of Visual Arts provides critical guidance in contemporary visual arts philosophies. It is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in art or design who want to relate their own practice to historical or contemporary discourse. It encourages a relationship between technical excellence in the studio and the conceptual aspirations of the discipline. Students are exposed to critical review of their work in a supportive environment.

Students complete three studio units and are required to take two units of contextual, critical or theoretical studies to complement and support their studio work. Several assessment methods are used during the course, including written assignments, submission of studio work and seminar presentations at an annual intensive four-day Symposium. Studio units will be assessed by a panel. Disciplines offered include drawing, painting, photomedia, printmedia and sculpture
