The vibrant Honours research community in the School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts (MCCA) brings together budding creative practitioners, media and information professionals, and literary, cultural and new media analysts.

Studying Honours in MCCA provides an opportunity for you to advance your research, analytical and writing skills as you develop a creative project or investigate a topic that has captured your interest.

You choose between two kinds of Honours thesis - creative production, or critical inquiry.

The creative production thesis combines an analytical essay (exegesis) with a creative project (screen production, writing, or performance), both of which address a central research question.

The critical inquiry thesis is a single, lengthy analytical study, which provides you with the scope to address a key question that you have identified in your research and reading of existing publications on your chosen topic.

The combination of coursework and supervised research in MCCA Honours is designed to produce the high-level skills in communication and critical analysis which are crucial to your future career at the forefront of academic research, or research in the fields of creative production, the media and information professions, the arts, government, and industry.

The coursework units provide you with a broad and rigorous grounding in key concepts, theories and research methods, while guiding you in your selection and application of these elements in your thesis. At the same you work with your supervisor to research and plan your thesis structure and content.

Building on the solid coursework foundation, and working closely with your supervisor, in the second half of the course your attention turns fully to the rewarding task of producing your thesis.
