Program fees

Commonwealth supported place

A Commonwealth supported place is where the Australian Government makes a contribution towards the cost of a students' higher education and students pay a student contribution amount, which varies depending on the courses undertaken. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.

Commonwealth Supported students may be eligible to defer their fees through a Government loan called HECS-HELP.

Domestic full fee paying place

Domestic full fee paying places are funded entirely through the full fees paid by the student. Full fees vary depending on the courses that are taken. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.

Domestic full fee paying students may be eligible to defer their fees through a Government loan called FEE-HELP provided they meet the residency and citizenship requirements.

Australian citizens, Permanent Humanitarian Visa holders, Permanent Resident visa holders and New Zealand citizens who will be resident outside Australia for the duration of their program pay full tuition fees and are not eligible for FEE-Help.

International full fee paying place

International students pay full fees. Full fees vary depending on the courses that are taken and whether they are studied on-campus, via distance education/online. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.

Program structure

The Bachelor of Creative Arts consists of 24 units. These are broadly divided into discipline majors (in Music, Theatre, Creative Media, or Visual Arts), minors, electives and one core Arts course. Each Creative Arts discipline offers 16 courses for students which is made up of 8 courses in theory and 8 in practice. Students may elect to do a full discipline major of 16 courses in one discipline area or divide this into 2 majors of 8 courses across 2 discipline areas. Together with CMS1000 Communication and Scholarship , students should take one of the following combinations of elements:

  • 16 unit Discipline Major plus 1 Core Course plus 7 units towards a major in either another discipline in the Bachelor of Creative Arts or other undergraduate Arts course. This is the most ideal combination for students seeking to do the one year graduate diploma in teaching upon completion in order to become a secondary school teacher as it provides ample room for a second teaching area;

  • 16 unit Discipline Major plus 1 Core Course plus 4 unit Minor plus 3 Electives. This combination allows flexibility in choosing the best possible minor suite;

  • 8 unit Discipline Major (Theory) plus 8 unit Discipline Major (Practice) plus 1 Core Course plus 4 unit Minor plus 3 Electives. This allows for maximum flexibility.


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.

Core courses

All students must take the core course CMS1000 Communication and Scholarship. The recommended pattern for enrolment in this core course by full-time on-campus students is in semester 1 year 1. This pattern should only be varied with the permission of the Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts. There are an additional 3 School core courses that all students undertaking the BCA are advised to enrol in throughout the third year of their degree: BCA3000 BCA Project A; BCA3001 BCA Project B; BCA3002 .

Major studies

A major study is a specified group of courses with a value of eight units. A major must have courses over three levels and contain at least two courses at third level. The following major studies are offered:

  • Creative Media

  • Music

  • Theatre

  • Visual Arts.


Other non-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 seven units (7 courses + 1 Core Course = 8) 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 third major or minor/elective study, not as a first or second 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 of this Handbook.

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.

There are three suites of minors that exist specifically to aid the delivery of performance content and outcomes for Creative Arts. These are offered to students in 2nd and 3rd years after they have completed one full year of the Bachelor of Creative Arts. These are:


#Entry into either the Acting or Stage Management minors are via an audition/interview that takes place at the end of the first year of study with a full major in Theatre (16 courses in Theatre).

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.
