The Sydney College of the Arts academic programs are studio-based to provide for both specialist and inter-disciplinary research and are structured around four contemporary visual arts areas:
Object Art and Design – Ceramics, Glass; and Jewellery & Object
Media Arts – Photomedia; and Film & Digital Art
Fine Arts – Painting; Printmedia; and Sculpture, Performance & Installation
A substantial infrastructure, including computer and specialist digital equipment, supports the development of work across all studio areas.
