Breadth studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music allow students from a variety of backgrounds to continue their interest in the arts or develop new skills and passions alongside their undergraduate degree.

Some subjects are suitable for beginners, others need a level of experience. The available options span dance, Indigenous arts and culture, interdisciplinary arts, film and television, music theatre, production, theatre and visual art.

Some are delivered through a traditional lecture-based format, while others are practically focused to give you hands-on experience. Subjects are taught on the Parkville and Southbank campuses and in many cases classes are also attended by Faculty students. As a breadth student you will be welcomed into our community of artists, performers, students and lecturers.
