It is a Commonwealth Supported course which provides students the opportunity to undertake a supervised creative practice-based project in either; fine arts, performance, photography, theatre, television, sound, text, hybrid arts or new media, or any other creative discipline, which can be exhibited, published, produced, performed or presented; and a writing project, as part of which the student carries out contextual research in creative practices and critical reflection on the practice based project.
The specialisation with which the student graduates is dependent on the nature of the project. Specialisations in Graphics and Animation are being proposed for 2010.
Students may commence in either semester.
