Overview

This program is for new 2018 commencing students. If you are a continuing student please refer to the Online Handbook in the year you started your Dual Law degree or contact the Faculty of Law for advice.

Students undertaking this dual degree program complete the core requirements of both the Bachelor of Art Theory and the Bachelor of Laws. The dual degree allows students to undertake a focused study in the visual arts and culture.

Students completing the BArtTh LLB are likely to gain employment in Arts or Law, but broader opportunities exist for careers in arts management and policy. The professional contexts courses of the BArtTh will enable students to develop career-related skills and experiences and the theoretical/historical contexts courses will provide depth of knowledge about the arts.
