Why study visual culture online?

Combine art theory, art history and critical theory to explore the history of art in Europe and Australia.

Take the option of combining your study of visual culture with a qualification in fine art, or concentrate purely on the theoretical and critical side. This study will prepare you for, or complement existing work in, arts administration, art gallery curation, museums, exhibition touring or art criticism..

Studying online means that you can engage with visual culture in a way that works with your day-to-day life.
