The Honours program allows exceptional students to undertake hands-on, substantial projects on specific research-relevant topics over the course of a year.
The program combines a laboratory and studio model of study with state-of-the-art resources to help you demonstrate your ability and establish your reputation and future career.
You will study the big issues in contemporary media and communication, expand on your abilities and further investigate your specialisation using sophisticated research and project skills. You will demonstrate your advanced conceptual abilities through project outcomes, examined by key industry and academic leaders.
This Honours program is the only one of its kind in Australia, allowing you to work with students from other disciplines in dedicated 24-hour access studio space (for honours students only).
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
The learning style of this program can be either thesis or project-based.
You will have access to studio space learning, under individual supervision to assist with your research outcomes. Group work will be conducted throughout the year but you will be assessed individually by external, international industry practitioners.
All programs are delivered in English. You will have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Honours research projects tend to be closely aligned to industry and professional practice. Your teachers and supervisors will provide assessment and feedback on how your research contributes to the field based on industry-relevant knowledge.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice.
Honours gives you the ability to differentiate yourself from degree graduates by specialising in your field over the course of an extra year’s study.
The media and communication industry is constantly evolving due to technological advances and changes in societal values, which influence the way we find information and communicate with each other.
Completing an honours year helps you keep up to date with your area of interest and demonstrates your outstanding ability to industry, both of which increase your employability. It is the traditional pathway to a masters by research or a doctorate (PhD).
Successful honours research projects tend to be an entry point into a student's preferred career.
Assessment is by academics and industry practitioners based around the world. This will provide you with a global outlook on your work by considering viewpoints from multiple regions and how your work can have different cultural impacts.
