About this course

Explore advanced creative projects and research through a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Honours). You'll build your skills, critical engagement and depth of knowledge, and be treated as an independent practitioner exploring your creative practice.

Honours is an optional year of specialised study that allows you to combine the theory and practical skills gained throughout your undergraduate degree.

It's an opportunity to showcase your knowledge in a field you're passionate about and to develop invaluable research and life skills that will stay with you throughout your career.

Do you want to find your creative practice in the field and critically engage with the work of your contemporaries?

With a strong interdisciplinary focus, this course enables students from all creative arts disciplines - dance; drama; film, television and animation; photography; design; and visual arts - to learn from each other and develop their creative arts practice and scholarly research skills.

You'll form ongoing relationships with practitioners and peers in your creative areas through industry connections with several professional and government-run creative arts organisations.

Whether you choose to work in industry as an individual practitioner, or within a creative team, this honours program will help you develop as a critically engaged thinker and highly skilled practitioner and researcher.

After graduating, you can further your studies in research or professional practice by applying for direct entry into second year of the Master of Creative Arts by coursework, a Master of Arts by Research, or you could pursue a PhD.
