Media and Communication Practice Research Symposium (PRS)

The PRS is a PhD program and a supervisory model for professional practitioners to: reflect on their practice; frame their practice; and rigorously engage with the next phase of their practice. M&C initiated their program in 2016, joining an already established Architecture PRS that meets biannually in Vietnam and Melbourne.

The School of Media and Communication currently has PRS cohorts in the disciplines of Creative Writing and Journalism. PRS candidates will be mid-career or established practitioners with a solid publication record and appropriate academic qualifications. The PRS captures the knowledge embedded in specific practice, and considers how a practitioner situates themselves within a body of knowledge and a community of practice. The practice IS the research.

Milestones are heavily structured and include symposia twice a year mapped to conventional PhD milestones where candidates present to a peer panel.
