Level: Undergraduate

Take your screen practice to the next level with an honours year. Build on the practical skills and depth of knowledge developed in the first three years of your degree by undertaking an advanced research project through Deakin's Bachelor of Film, Television and Animation (Honours). Treated as an independent professional, you’ll undergo an elevated study experience to emerge as a critically engaged, highly skilled screen practitioner and researcher. The honours program opens doors to a career in the screen industry or the opportunity to delve deeper into your research with a masters degree or PhD. By completing an additional year of specialised study, you’ll produce a significant screen production folio and gain that edge future employers are searching for in an industry-renowned for its competitiveness. You will be treated as an independent screen practitioner and your experience will be quite different from that you have experienced as an undergraduate student. Whether you are working as an individual practitioner or working in a creative team, you will emerge from your honours year as a critically engaged and highly skilled screen practitioner and researcher. Take a deep dive into screen practice and build knowledge in traditional scholarly research. We teach you the fundamental skills of traditional scholarly research so that you can successfully locate your screen practice in the field and critically engage with the work of others. An honours year allows you the time to focus closely on your screen practice. The course has a deliberate focus to allow students to enter a single degree and receive highly regarded learning experiences in screen practice and research. After graduating, you can further your studies in research or professional practice by applying for direct entry into second year of the Master of Film and Television by coursework, a Master of Arts by Research, or you could pursue a PhD.
