Bachelor of Education (Secondary) / Bachelor of Fine Arts

Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

This double degree equips graduates to be the creators of original content for the creative industries, or to apply their creative abilities to educational settings and the teaching profession. The fine arts component incorporates studio and/or project-based practice and aims to prepare graduates to produce, display, promote and distribute their own work through traditional and emerging channels. Students are also prepared to be secondary school teachers in two teaching areas, one being in fine arts and the other English (not available with the Creative Writing major), geography, history, mathematics. Students learn to inspire curiosity and innovation in the next generation. Through a strong professional identity as a teacher, graduates can lead creativity and innovation in the education sector. Professional experience placements provide the opportunity to work in real educational settings, supervised by practising professional educators.
