Art can inspire and challenge us, provide meaning and open our minds. In our visual arts program and courses, you’ll learn the skills to create art that translates what you see in your mind to something others can explore or be challenged by.

Take your unique talent and enhance it with practice-based fine arts studies across a range of mediums: painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, video and digital imaging, as well as new media. 

Our visual arts courses also teach you the business skills you need to build a career in this exciting and challenging field. Whichever medium best expresses your creative self, we’ll give you the head start you need.

The Swinburne Advantage

An undergraduate degree must be about more than just knowledge – it’s also job readiness, professional experience and access to further opportunities. 

We partner with leading Australian and global organisations to offer students authentic workplace experiences. Our degrees can include placements, internships, industry-linked projects, study tours and more. This is your chance to work on real-life projects, solve day-to-day challenges in your field and gain the professional skills that put knowledge into practice. You’ll build invaluable skills and confidence, knowing you have what it takes to land a job by graduation or even before.
