Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours)
The Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) is designed to provide high-achieving students with the opportunity to develop a substantial research project over the course of one year of additional undergraduate study. Honours can be undertaken in two modes: by Studio Major and Research Paper or Dissertation and Minor Studio Project. In both options, the focus of the program is on further developing skills and understanding of your practice through intensive work on an individual project.
During Honours you will have the opportunity to establish an ongoing one-on-one relationship with an academic supervisor, who has experience in your area of research or any allied area. Our academic staff are practicing artists with specialist skills and leaders in their areas of practice. In regular meetings your supervisor will offer you feedback, suggest directions for your work and support you in the development of your major project.
The Honours program includes coursework components designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of contemporary art and to introduce you to higher level research skills. The work produced by Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) students at SCA is also strongly featured in the annual SCA Undergraduate Degree Show.
