This is a theory-based study program designed for graduates with a Screen and Media major from the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Media Arts, Bachelor of Creative Arts (Screen), and Bachelor of Creative Arts (Digital Media), or an equivalent qualification.
Students are normally expected to complete the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) within one year of full-time study or two years’ of part-time study. Under exceptional circumstances students may be permitted to extend the duration of the Honours program with the approval of the Course Coordinator.
This major aims:
- to extend aspects of the knowledge gained in the Screen and Media major of the undergraduate degree, to the point where students develop areas of academic specialisation at a level beyond that normally attainable in the degree.
- to familiarise students with advanced skills in academic writing, including thesis preparation and standards required for publication
- to provide students with the opportunity to present their findings to a research seminar
- to encourage students to become independent thinkers and researchers.
Students completing the Screen and Media Honours program will be able to demonstrate:
- a thorough understanding of existing academic knowledge in the area of their specialisation
- a capacity to develop and support the extended argument needed for an Honours research thesis
- the ability to evaluate, analyse and deploy evidence in support of a research thesis
- the ability to communicate their findings clearly, in both oral and written form
- the ability to take a leading role in a collaborative academic forum.
