Costanza Bergo completed a Bachelor of Art Theory.
Costanza says that undertaking a creative degree “completely altered and improved” her view of the world and herself. She realised that all the things she had been doing spontaneously and instinctively throughout her life, such as “writing, analysing, thinking critically, and maintaining an awareness of visual culture… could become a vocation”.
An art theory degree enabled her to combine her intellectual interests with job prospects. Costanza undertook an Honours in Art Theory on exchange from England. She says that the driving force for selecting the “right degree” was ensuring that she would be able to fulfil her passions; “I wanted a career that I could believe in, something that would give my life purpose, one that I could be passionate about”.
