The program

UC recognises how important it is that you are able to continue with your studies while your travel plans are temporarily put on hold due to COVID-19. For this reason, we have developed a carefully selected range of online units for our most popular degree courses, enabling you to commence your study online before transitioning to face-to-face study once travel restrictions are lifted.

Fields you can choose to explore include: communication, journalism, creative writing, culture and heritage, industrial design, visual communication design, architecture, landscape architecture, TESOL/FLT or international studies.

You will develop a deep knowledge of recent developments in your chosen area, as you work to produce a research thesis of up to 60,000 words, or a non-traditional research output, such as a creative work or design which addresses a research question plus accompanying critical essay.

This unique and flexible degree encourages multidisciplinary research that mirrors the dynamic nature of today’s professions and aims to give you a creative edge in your future career.

As a Higher Degree by Research (HDR), this course is covered under the Australian Government’s Research Training Program (RTP) funding model, which provides a fee offset for domestic students for the standard duration of the course.

  • receive structured training in research methods
  • exhibit advanced knowledge of research principles and skills appropriate to one or more fields
  • be part of an exciting community of researchers and research students in a dynamic and diverse faculty
  • articulate your findings to your research and industry peers
  • demonstrate an ability to communicate with the community of researchers within UC and the professions to create opportunities for research cooperation.
