Why Art Design &
Architecture?
By studying art, design or architecture, you can develop the
knowledge and skills to make your vision come alive.
Art, design and architecture studies lead to careers that are
flexible and dynamic. Graduates from these disciplines have
strong visual communication skills and the ability to think
creatively. As inquisitive individuals, they develop innovative
solutions to improve the world around them and contribute
to the social discourse.
Art, design and architecture students have designed
products to help people with disabilities, created installations
that comment on social issues and developed emergency
relief structures. The applications for these skills are limitless.
Creative professionals, from artists and architects to animators
and industrial designers, shape where and how we live,
the products we use and culture we consume. With an art,
design or architecture degree, a world of opportunities, and
the opportunity to change the world, await you.

What I enjoy most about Monash is the
freedom to choose any design discipline
you want to study and really take an
interdisciplinary approach to your degree.
As a communication design student,
Im not just restricted to computer
generated animations and graphics,
but Im also encouraged to study other
areas such as drawing, sculpting,
photography or illustration.

A guide to choice
FLEXIBILITY
AND
CHOICE
Range of majors
A comprehensive course is flexible and
evolves as your interests develop in
particular directions.
You can start with units from a range of
study areas and through your choices
progressively focus on one or two majors
and minors.
Monash guides you through this process so
you graduate with a degree that combines
breadth and depth of expertise relevant to
your interests and aspirations. Your degree
may show your majors.
Specialist focus
A specialist course offers you focus and
depth through specialisation In your area

CONCURRENTLY
Double degree
course
A double degree course lets you gain skills
in two different areas of interest such as
arts and law or science and engineering.
This lets you tailor your qualification to
fit your diverse interests and talents and
doubles your options when you graduate.
Double degree courses can take up to two
years less than if you took the two courses
one after the other. This is because the
electives from each degree course count
towards the other.
You will graduate with two distinct degrees.
Professional entry
graduate courses
Some courses at Monash prepare you for
direct entry to a profession upon graduation

Architecture
Architecture is the core discipline of the
built environment. Architecture professionals
provide leadership in the design and
construction of the built environment, and
the design of internal spaces to facilitate a
specific user experience.
Fine Art
Fine Art encompasses the creation, critique
and analysis of art. The best fine art
functions like a mirror providing insight into
the complexities of the world around us.
The principle role of artists is to increase the
collective awareness of where we are and
how we relate to each other.

Architectural Design
Architects dont just shape our built environment.
They influence where and how we live, study,
work and play. Successful architecture can
revitalise a city, make housing affordable or
help us live more sustainable lives.
By combining their creative vision with technical
expertise, architects develop innovative
solutions to the complex challenges facing our
built environment.
Interior Architecture
Interior Architecture professionals design spatial
experiences by combining their understanding
of how people engage with the world, with their
knowledge of structures, spaces and environments.
They create spaces that communicate ideas,
shared values and stories.

Edwina Brisbane, Architecture Assistant at
Craig Tan Architecture. Bachelor of Architectural
Design/Master of Architecture Graduated 2012
The nature of the program at MADA is intimate and flexible
and this fostered creative risk taking and the individual
development of each student. Because the classes are
small, individual opinions are valued. I developed the ability
to critically evaluate my design decisions and understand
those of others.
We understand architecture as a creative discipline, which is why
we offer our architecture program alongside our fine art and design
courses. We foster your development as an imaginative and innovative
architect who collaborates with other creative professionals.
Bachelor of Architectural Design/
Master of Architecture and Bachelor of
Architectural Design Scholars Program
At MADA, over half your degree is undertaken in the design studio
where you construct models and build full-scale structures, both in
class and in the community. You can also experiment with diverse
materials in our glass, metals and woodwork studios.
In the Design-Make studio, you work with a visiting architect to
design and build a public structure. In 2013 students designed and
constructed a sculptural temporary pavilion using fabric, perspex
and plastic, with the support of local architectural firm Grimshaw.
The finished form was used as a chillout space at the Listen Out
music festival, and then reconstructed on campus for MADA Now,
the annual graduate show.

Bachelor of Interior Architecture
Studio units are the main component of your interior architecture study.
In the studio you explore the materiality of space, structure, objects and
furniture, and you learn how spatial design can facilitate engagement
and interaction. You also gain architectural and construction knowledge
so you can confidently create complex interiors.
Many of your studio projects involve real organisations, so you develop
solutions for existing spaces. Students have designed solutions for
a performative space for Phillip Adams Melbourne-based dance
company, BalletLab, and an extension for the inner city rooftop bar,
The Loop.
Throughout the course you take your designs from 2D concepts
to 3D inhabitable environments. By working full scale, you discover
how your choice of materials and construction methods influence
the final outcome.
Best of all, our interior architecture course includes a work placement
program, so you can put your skills and knowledge into practice and
develop invaluable industry connections

DESIGN 20
Design
Communication Design
As print, screen and interactive media converge
and new technologies continue to develop designers
must be competent vidual communicators who can
work across a multitude of platforms; from traditional
print to digital media and motion graphics.
Communication designers work with colour,
sound and spatial forums, across a broad range
of communication processes from posters, books
and digital publications, to interactive information
design and 3D animation.
Successful communication designers have the
confidence to adapt as our world changes around us.
Industrial Design
Industrial designers embrace art and
technology. When designing objects, they
create form in response to function and
explore methods of manufacturing.
Industrial designers develop consumer and
industrial products that improve society,
enrich our culture and contribute to our
economy from furniture and smart phones,
to domestic appliances and public transport.
By applying their understanding of materials,
manufacturing and how people use products,
industrial designers combine technical
innovation with aesthetics to create beautiful,
functional products.
DESIGN 21
Bachelor of Communication Design
At MADA you complete half your communication design studies
in the studio. You have the freedom to explore your own visual
processes and methods of design enquiry, so you become an
independent designer with a strong sense of self. Almost a quarter
of your studies are electives, so you develop a graduate folio that
reflects your unique career goals. From branding to animation,
typography to interactive media, the choice is yours.
We combine visual communication, multimedia and motion graphics
into one degree because we know industry needs innovative and
adaptable designers who can design for the platform that best
meets their needs.
We also have the best design team in Australia teaching your
degree. With specialised design educators, such as Gene Bawden,
the internationally acclaimed designer John Warwicker (Tomato),
and regular visiting lecturers from industry, including Andrew Ashton
(Work, Art, Life), our staff will nurture, mentor and support you.

Bachelor of Industrial Design
Our degree at MADA nurtures you for the professional role of an
industrial designer. We also equip you with the practical knowledge
and technical skills that industrial designers use on a daily basis
so you can confidently step straight from uni into industry and hit
the ground running.
In the Industrial Design studios you learn to use design as a
problem-solving tool to address issues of sustainability, usability,
efficiency and innovation. You learn to work to a design brief as
you will in industry. As you discover your strengths and interests,
you can tailor your projects to create a portfolio that reflects
your career goals.
Studio classes are hands-on by nature. In 2013, students made
3D printers in a project that brought together principles of innovation,
craftsmanship and sustainability. Students repurpose parts sourced
from old inkjet and laser printers and combined them with specialised
circuitry and a few custom-built pieces to create their own 3D printer.

FINE ART 25

Now there are no priests or philosophers left,
artists are the most important people in the world

Fine Art at MADA is a highly specialised program which will launch your career
in contemporary art. Our award winning graduates exhibit nationally and
internationally and work across the many opportunities offered in the
professional and creative fields.
2013 MADA Now: Opening Night.
FINE ART 26
Contemporary practice
Contemporary practice is the foundation of fine art studies at MADA.
You can take an interdisciplinary approach and explore a range
of media and techniques, or you can practice in a single medium.
At MADA we encourage you to explore and develop your practice
across drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, printmaking,
performance, video, photography, digital technologies, sound,
artists books, art writing, jewellery and glass.
Additional drawing and digital imaging studies allow you to advance
your creative communication abilities and develop technical skills
and expertise.
You enhance your understanding of the concepts that inform
contemporary practice through a suite of specialised theoretical units.
How you learn
The hallmark of our fine art course at MADA is our open approach that
lets you find and develop your own artistic voice. We provide one to one
tuition with some of Australias best artists, and all students have access
to studio space.
You also engage with the critical discourse around contemporary art
practices and the professional art world beyond university. This enables
you to gain important transferable skills such as the ability to collaborate,
analyse, write and communicate well.
Our elective choices give you the opportunity to undertake units from
across the university, including design and architecture, to expand your
creative experience.

FINE ART 27
In 2013 I was pleased to instigate a collaborative
project called Students in Dissent with a group of
MADA undergraduates. They created a playful
paste-up wall of screen printed posters inspired
by urban street art. The project was selected
fortheNationalGalleryofVictoriasfagship
exhibition Melbourne Now, an excellent result
at such an early stage in the careers of these
young artists and designers.

Degree Double degrees
Bachelor of Fine Art
Fine Art encompasses the creation, critique
and analysis of art. The best fine art functions
like a mirror providing insight into the
complexities of the world around us.
The principle role of artists is to increase the
collective awareness of where we are and
how we relate to each other.

study. However some of our four-year bachelor
degrees, like the Bachelor of Industrial Design
and the Bachelor of Interior Architecture,
may be awarded with honours depending
on your grades.
Postgraduate
coursework degrees
Coursework degrees are professional courses
developed with the needs of employers and
industry in mind. They include a tightly structured
series of units, seminars, group and individual
assignments, and presentations.

During a research course, you complete a
major research project under the guidance
of a supervisor. Most research undertaken
