**The B-FACONTMU program is now a Bachelor of Music. Information listed below only applies to students who commenced the degree Prior to 2016**

The Bachelor of Fine Arts is a new three-year degree which offers immersive and experiential practice-based studio studies in seven areas of specialisation (Visual Art, Film and Television, Contemporary Music, Music Theatre, Theatre Practice, Dance and Production). It features an intense and student-centred approach to skills training, to create self-confident and autonomous arts practitioners with the capacity to build sustainable careers in an international context. Each specialisation features regular opportunities for exhibition, production and performance, and culminates in a capstone experience, which prepares students for professional work and further research. Critical studies build knowledge of the context of a student’s core discipline along with academic literacy, and complementary studies offer a choice of electives in the visual and performing arts, or from other areas of study within the University of Melbourne. The degree is designed to have international currency and to assist the VCA to raise its international profile.
