The course is a component of the Honours program in the Bachelor of Fine Art, where a student is able to select a specialization including 2D Art (Painting, Drawing, Printmaking), 3D Art (Ceramics, Fibres/Textiles, Sculpture), Photomedia (Digital, Traditional) or Art Theory.
Together with AART4110, AART4120 and AART4140 the course is designed to allow students to develop a high professional standard in studio research, production, exhibition and written work or advanced written work in art theory. This course is studied in conjunction with AART4140 in full-time mode. It is studied through internal mode.

" The ability to plan and to carry out independent research
" The ability to select and administer appropriate methods for collecting and analyzing relevant data
" An understanding of different studio approaches, (materials, processes and techniques) and/or theoretical approaches in Fine Art

AART4130 is one of two units (with AART4140) devoted to a research project. This will result in a solo exhibition and a research essay or a critical theoretical paper. The student will:
" Develop and implement ideas and concepts commensurate with a study at this advanced level in either studio practice or art theory
" Develop a critical awareness and knowledge relevant to their chosen area of study
" Examine the content and principles upon which their work is based in order to place their practice within a relevant contemporary context
