The Bachelor of Media with Honours is a separate fourth year of study that is undertaken following the successful completion of an undergraduate Media degree. In addition to the skills and knowledge that graduates have developed in their undergraduate degree, the Honours degree is highly regarded in providing advanced intellectual education in research, analysis and/or production. It signifies a demonstrable ability in conducting research in Media studies. For media producers, it also demonstrates their ability to produce a significant work. As well as a completion point for tertiary study itself, Honours also represents the starting point for entry into postgraduate and academic research.
The Honours degree includes a unit in research methodology and management that assists students to conduct a significant research project on a topic of their interest. Generally this research project will be documented in a written thesis. Students undertaking a creative project will produce a creative work and a shorter thesis that discusses the theoretical underpinnings of the creative work. An Honours Supervisor will assist you at each stage of your project.
Prior to lodging an application, interested applicants must contact the University to discuss their eligibility and to find a suitable honours supervisor for their proposed honours topic. For more information refer to the School of Arts and Social Sciences Honours information
