- Introduces you to practice-based research skills and to a range of research methodologies
- Develops your capacity for devising, defining and managing a major creative project

The course provides an opportunity for graduates from the VCA’s Bachelor of Fine Arts (Production) and production graduates of other institutions to develop their potential for practice-led research, and deepen their knowledge and professional practice through an advanced and specialised fourth year of study.
Students are introduced to practice-led research skills and methodologies for devising, defining and managing a major creative project and related research paper. The independent research required for producing this major project develops students’ ability for critical and creative thinking and problem solving, and develops their aptitude for continued self-directed learning; producing better informed, skilled and more articulate practitioners.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) (Production) program also prepares students for a direct pathway to a Masters Research degree.
