Join a diverse community of creative artists and learn the theories and practices required to gain a successful career in the creative industries. You can specialise in:
– Screen – understand how moving images change the world.
– Theatre – explore the history of theatre through performance and production.
– Visual arts – learn the conceptual and technical skills to produce works that respond to the world around you.
– Writing – gain the skills to write persuasive and intriguing narratives.
Through the shared core subjects for each specialisation you’ll learn to apply relevant skills and knowledge to produce and critique a range of creative art works. You’ll be taught to interpret, communicate and present ideas, problems and arguments for different audiences.
Choose a major in the specialisation that interests you most, then select a second major that compliments your first. Choose subjects from other areas of creative arts or from humanities and other disciplines across the University, including but not limited to: media, English, languages, politics, sociology, history, and psychology.
Learn to recognise and reflect on social, cultural and ethical issues, and apply local and international perspectives to practice.
You’ll have access to the La Trobe Art Institute and its network of galleries and the opportunity to exhibit your work in a solo or group exhibition, pop-up gallery and community arts project.
The Screen and Theatre majors are offered at Melbourne only, the Writing major is offered at Melbourne and Bendigo and the Visual Arts major is offered in Bendigo and Mildura.
