Take your creative practice to the next level. Build your current skills, critical engagement and depth of knowledge, by undertaking advanced creative projects and research through Deakin's Creative Arts (Honours) course. Find out more about the course online and apply today.
The Bachelor of Creative Arts (Honours) has a deliberately inter-disciplinary focus, allowing students from all seven creative arts disciplines Animation and Motion Capture, Dance, Drama, Film and Television, Photography, Visual Communication Design, and Visual Arts to enter a single degree and receive collective learning experiences in creative arts practice and research.
Honours is a fourth year of an undergraduate degree. The Honours year provides a dynamic environment of cross fertilisation and learning from each other. The programme enables you to take your knowledge and your creative practice to the next level. You will be treated as an independent practitioner and your experience will be quite different than it has been so far as an undergraduate.
Honours allows you the time to closely focus on, and grow your creative practice.
The Honours programme at Deakin involves creative practice and traditional scholarly research. We teach you the fundamental skills of traditional scholarly research so that you can successfully locate your creative practice in the field and critically engage with the work of others.
An Honours year also grants you increased access to leaders in the field outside of the confines of the university. We have established formal connections with several professional and government run Creative Arts organisations so that you can make meaningful connections and form ongoing relationships with key people in your creative areas.
Upon completion of your Honours year you can apply for direct entry into second year of the Masters of Creative Arts by coursework or you can choose to undertake a Masters of Arts by Research. You might decide to go on to a PhD, which is a high-level research degree.
Whether you are individual creative practitioners or working in creative teams, you will emerge from the Honours programme as a critically engaged and highly skilled practitioner and researcher.
Cloud (online) studies
Deakin offers many courses which can be studied by distance education overseas.
However, international students living in Australia must, in each compulsory trimester (that is, Trimesters 1 and 2), enrol in at least one unit that is offered as a Campus located unit and can, in addition enrol in units offered via Cloud (online). International students are not permitted to do more than 25% of their total course via Cloud (online) learning. Best practice is to enrol in mostly Campus located units in each compulsory trimester.
In a non-compulsory trimester (Trimester 3), international students may study Cloud (online) units only.
Fees and charges
Equivalent Full Time Student Load (EFTSL)
EFTSL is the standard annual full time load. Eight credit points is considered a standard full time load for one year. Each unit you study has an EFTSL value. You can add these together to calculate your study load each year. Depending on enrolment, you may be enrolled in more than or less than the one EFTSL each year.

Fees for international students apply to persons living in Australia with Temporary Resident status, provided that there is no limitation on study and persons living abroad who are not Australian citizens and do not have Permanent Resident status in Australia.
