Description

Honours is a prestigious program comprising a fourth year of coursework and performance research after the completion of a Bachelor of Performing Arts. Students choose a topic and undertake research while working with a carefully selected supervisor, who provides individual guidance and academic counselling.

Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the honours program, students will have extended their undergraduate knowledge in a specific area of the performing arts through in-depth study of dramatic theory contextualised through theatre history, research methodology, and performance analysis. They will have built upon their skills in the areas of research, analysis, writing and performance communication.

Entry requirements

Students must have:
