Bachelor of Creative Arts (Honours)


Students who have fulfilled the requirements of a Bachelor of Creative Arts and achieved a distinction average may undertake an Honours degree in their major area of study.

The Honours program is an end-on degree in Creative Arts and provides an opportunity for candidates to develop, to a sophisticated level, established theoretical and practical skills gained during their undergraduate course. In the BCA (Hons) course, the student is given close supervision of both a research topic and a creative presentation. In addition, a weekly research methodology seminar in Autumn Session provides training in advanced research skills specific to disciplines with the creative arts. The course thus provides a pathway to higher research degrees at masters and doctoral levels.

Entry Requirements

Students may apply to enrol in an Honours degree after the requirements of the pass degree have been fulfilled at the prescribed academic standard usually a distinction average in practical and theory subjects is required. Admission to Honours is by recommendation of the relevant head of the discipline and approval by the Dean or Associate Dean of the Faculty, and acceptance by an academic supervisor in the discipline.

Students proceeding directly from a 3-year degree to Honours do not graduate until after they have completed Honours. However, it is possible to graduate with a Pass Degree and then decide to undertake Honours at a later date, either at this University or at another University. Graduates from other Universities may also apply to undertake Honours at the University of Wollongong.
