Course overview

Course overview

This honours program, delivered in partnership with the University of Canberra, will take your studies in the creative industries to the next level.

Students have two options for how to complete the program. The first option is to develop a project to work on throughout your honours year and write an accompanying dissertation. The second option is to write a longer dissertation as the sole focus of your research. The units in this honours program have been specially designed to guide you on your research journey. You will also have a supervisor who will act as your mentor throughout the academic journey of your honours studies.

Working closely with expert supervisors, you will develop the high-level skills required for research or project-based employment. This qualification will significantly broaden your future career prospects and also provides a direct pathway into masters or PhD studies.

Pass degree graduates in similar disciplinary fields from other universities, with comparable results, may also be eligible to undertake this honours degree.
