Art History and Theory
Art History and Theory specialises in the study of modern and contemporary art, and is one of Australia’s largest and most dynamic centres for research and teaching in art and visual culture. The school fosters innovative approaches to the study of art and visual culture. The outstanding research of the school is recognised by a high level of success in obtaining competitive national grants.
Art and Design Education
The practice of teaching is fundamental to all societies. It is the glue that holds cultures and peoples together. Teaching ensures that knowledge and skills are passed onto others and recorded through generations.
Art and Design Education provides comprehensive and integrated programs to students wishing to become art and design teachers. The programs ensure that students understand processes of critical assessment and trends in art history and the fine arts, design, new media and art history alongside courses in learning and teaching. The programs enable students to practice and specialise in artistic and design oriented disciplines of their choice. Most importantly perhaps, the programs prepare students to develop a professional approach to curriculum.
COFA is a leader in the field of Art and Design Education in Australia. The school offers programs of intensive study in visual arts and culture convened by leading researchers in their fields.
