Program structure

The Bachelor of Creative Arts consists of 24 units. These are broadly divided into specialisations (in Film, Television and Radio; Music; Theatre or Visual Arts), extended majors, majors, minors, electives and one core Arts course. Each Creative Arts area of specialisation offers a minimum of 16 courses, commencing with a foundation year of 8 courses that is inclusive of the School core CMS1000 Communication and Scholarship. At the completion of the foundation year, students will be able to map out their pathway in the remainder of the program, with a greater or lesser degree of further specialisation, combinations of extended majors, majors, minors, and electives, or hybridisation as they wish. Students may combine one of the 16 unit extended majors with another 8 unit major from within Creative Arts or beyond, or with suites of minors and electives. Where available, each specialisation can also encompass 20 or 24 unit extended majors.

Students should take one of the following combinations of elements:

  • 16 unit Creative Arts Extended Major plus an eight unit major in either another discipline in the Bachelor of Creative Arts or other undergraduate major in Arts or any available major across the university. This is the most ideal combination for students seeking to undertake postgraduate teaching qualifications upon completion in order to become a secondary school teacher as it provides ample room for a second teaching area;

  • 16 unit Extended Major plus 2 x 4 unit Minor. This combination allows flexibility in choosing two possible minor suites, and thus up to three areas of study within Creative Arts, or up to two other areas from anywhere in the university alongside a Creative Arts specialisation;

  • 16 unit Extended Major plus 1 x 4 unit Minor plus 4 electives. This allows for maximum flexibility.

  • 20 unit Extended Major plus 1 x 4 unit Minor. This allows students to undertake an extended specialisation in their chosen Creative Arts discipline and still achieve a Minor in any other available area;

  • 24 unit Extended Major. Subject to availability, certain pathways in individual disciplines allow students the flexibility to fully specialise in a single area of study for the entire degree. In some cases, as in the Acting Studio, a 24 unit enrolment pattern is the only way to complete the pathway (please consult Recommended Enrolment Patterns for more details);

  • students may also elect to divide a major of 16 courses in one discipline area into two majors of eight courses across two discipline areas. Students wishing to undertake such a hybrid major will require consultation and approval from the Bachelor of Creative Arts program coordinator and to complete the entry requirements for each chosen discipline.


Students will be advised to enrol in specific combinations of majors, minors, and electives to enhance their opportunities for employment or further study. Further details of these combinations can be obtained from the Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts. In some instances, however, combinations preferred by individual students may not be available due to quota, timetable, or enrolment pattern constraints.

Major studies

The Bachelor of Creative Arts program has four discipline-focused specialisations- Film, Television and Radio (FTR), Music; Theatre; Visual Arts. Each discipline specialisation contains several possible pathways made up of 16, 20, and 24 unit extended majors.

  • Bachelor of Creative Arts (Film, Television and Radio)

    This specialisation includes extended majors in Film/Animation, Television/Radio and Animation/Broadcast

  • Bachelor of Creative Arts (Music)

    The Music specialisation offers studio practice in Contemporary Singing and a range of instrumental and collaborative music practices.

  • Bachelor of Creative Arts (Theatre)

    This specialisation includes extended majors in Acting, Technical Production and Scenography, and Theatre Studies.

  • Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts)

    This specialisation offers studio practice in Ceramics, Gallery Studies, Painting, Printmaking, and Spatial Construction.


A major study is a specified group of courses with a value of at least eight units. Students in the Bachelor of Creative Arts will choose one of a series of extended majors offered as part of their selected specialisation. An extended major is a specified group of courses with values of 16, 20, or 24 units. Eight-unit majors are also offered across all specialisations and can be combined with 16 unit majors for students wishing to undertake two areas of study in the Creative Arts. A major must have courses over three levels and contain at least two courses at third level (extended majors must have at least four courses at third level).

Course lists for each major can be found under Recommended Enrolment Patterns

The Bachelor of Creative Arts also has a fifth specialisation available:

  • Bachelor of Creative Arts – Hybrid Specialisation

    Students may elect to do two majors of eight courses each across two discipline areas. This must incorporate one practice major and one theory major within Creative Arts (as listed in the eight-unit majors below) to make up the equivalent of a 16 unit extended major. Students may then choose further practice or theory courses from either discipline to make up the remaining eight courses but this must also include the completion of the mandatory core course, CMS1000 Communication and Scholarship. Students wishing to undertake such a hybrid major will require consultation and approval from the Bachelor of Creative Arts program coordinator. They will also need to have satisfied the admission requirements (including potential audition/interview) of each area they wish to study. Students choosing this specialisation will only see ‘Bachelor of Creative Arts’ on their testamur.


Extended Majors

Extended majors are comprised of a minimum of 16 courses within discipline-focused areas of specialisation. Students enrolling in the BCAR will normally choose (and audition/interview for) one extended major. Each extended major commences with a foundation year of eight courses that is inclusive of the School core CMS1000 Communication and Scholarship. The following extended major studies are offered:

Film Television and Radio – Film/Animation (20 unit Major)

Film Television and Radio – Television/Radio (20 unit Major)

Film Television and Radio – Animation/Broadcast (20 unit Major)

Music Practice (8 unit Major)

Theatre Practice (8 unit Major)

Theatre Theory (8 unit Major)

Visual Arts Practice (8 unit Major)

Visual Arts Theory (8 unit Major)

Choice of a second major from within Creative Arts will depend on the availability of the subject area, timetabling constraints, quotas and other restrictions such as interviews in certain areas of the Creative Arts, as well as approval of the Faculty of Business, Education, Law, and Arts.

Other non-Creative Arts Majors in the Bachelor of Creative Arts

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Creative Arts are able to take one major or minor/elective study from other undergraduate programs offered by the University of Southern Queensland, with the approval of the Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts.

For Bachelor of Creative Arts purposes, a major in these areas comprises eight units of which at least two must be at Level 3. Enrolment in these majors is subject to prerequisites, quota availability, and timetabling constraints.

These majors may only be listed as a second or third major or minor/elective study, not as a first major.

Back to top

Minor Studies

Minor studies are designed to enable students to widen their knowledge and perspectives. Courses must be taken over two levels and should be in the same discipline or recognised multi-disciplinary area.

Students who take only two major studies must take one of the Minors indicated in the Minor studies section.

All of the discipline areas of the Creative Arts will offer suites of minors and electives from their existing major course offerings. Students should take courses to the value of at least four units in the selected minor study. Choice of a minor will depend on the availability of the subject area, timetabling constraints, quotas and other restrictions such as interviews in certain areas of the Creative Arts, as well as approval of the Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts.

Back to top

Electives/Approved courses

Elective courses are designed to enable students to further increase their knowledge and widen their perspectives. Choice of an elective will depend on the availability of the course(s), timetabling constraints, quotas, and other restrictions such as auditions and interviews in certain areas of the Arts, as well as approval by the Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts.

Courses available for elective study are generally those found in Minor studies and are listed in the Minor studies Minor studies section..
