About Sydney College of the Arts

The Sydney College of the Arts is the visual arts faculty of the University of Sydney. The campus is located in Rozelle, Sydney, Australia and housed within the Kirkbride complex, a cluster of sandstone buildings designed by James Barnet, the government architect, in the late 19th complex was part of the Callan Park Lunatic Asylum for the Mentally and Criminally Insane, which was built between 1878 and 1884. It was a major psychiatric hospital for many years but, in the late 20th century, the hospital functions were moved to the western section of the estate and the Kirkbride complex became the home of the College of the Arts. The college is a base for the study of the visual arts.The College was subject to talks between Sydney University and the University of New South Wales about merging with the National Art School at Darlinghurst. When these discussions collapsed, students occupied the College on 20 August 2016 to prevent its closure at Rozelle, staff cuts, and move in early 2017 to Sydney University's Camperdown/Darlington Campus. It was to become part of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences,Programs of study Ceramics – BVA, MFA, MCA, PhD Critical Studies – BVA, MFA, PhD Curating – MArtC, PhD Glass – BVA, MFA, MCA, PhD Jewellery and Object – BVA, MFA, MCA, PhD Painting – BVA, MFA, MCA, PhD Photomedia – BVA, MFA, MCA, PhD Printmedia – BVA, MFA, MCA, PhD Screen Arts – BVA, MFA, MMI, MCA, PhD Sculpture – BVA, MFA, MCA, PhD
