The Nature and Roles of Arts Degrees project aims to:

  • Understand the nature and structure of a BA degree in contemporary Australia.
  • Map trends in BA programs on offer in Australia since 2001.
  • Identify the major strengths, challenges, capabilities and contributions of BA degrees.
  • Provide rich comparative data on the models of BAs to be accessible for future curriculum planning for Arts Faculties.

The first phase of this project was completed in July 2008. Outputs from this first phase are publicly accessible on this site.

A second project phase updated the key data to the period 2011–12. A third phase was undertaken in 2015–16 updating the exemplars of workplace learning opportunities identified in the Nature and Roles of Arts Degrees project.

Outputs from the second and third project phases can be found in the password protected pages of this site in the right-hand side of your screen.
