What will I learn?
The honours program supports and develops your capacity as a practicing artist and active researcher in the field of contemporary art.
This program is designed for students who have successfully completed a three-year degree in contemporary art or craft, or an equivalent field, and who wish to undertake a further year of study to focus exclusively on an individual project.
At this level of study, you will engage within a high-level intensive program, deepening and enriching your practice through expertise, knowledge and criticality.
You will be guided through personalised mentorship and individual supervision, as you are introduced to practice-led research and research methodologies.
A flexible curriculum provides opportunities for you to develop an individual project and to further your knowledge and capability for professional or highly skilled art practice, and/or further learning at a postgraduate level.
There are five study streams to choose from:
Contemporary art practices involves an individual contemporary art project within any medium, method or strategy, including painting, drawing, installation practices, moving image, photography, spatial practices, print image practices, or conceptual and post-object based art practices.
Sound art practices allows you to focus on the development of a contemporary sonic art project, interrogating themes and practices derived from composition, performance, exhibition and audio-vision.
Contemporary art and craft practices lead you to produce an individual contemporary art and/or craft project, with emphasis on object-based practices. This may include ceramics or gold and silver smithing, but may equally include other fields of craft related practice.
Curatorial practices allow you to develop your curatorial practice, investigating the discourses and hybridised spaces between art practice and curatorship. Applicants are required to have undertaken prior studies in the field of contemporary art or craft.
Trans disciplinary practices - A project may be solo or collaborative, specialised or trans disciplinary, in which multiple art forms and practices may converge.
Many of our graduates have continued on to become:
artists in every field of art or craft
musicians and sound performers
teachers, academics and researchers
curators and museum personnel
arts writers and theorists
arts administrators and cultural officers
technical specialists within a wide range of creative and cultural fields
moving image practitioners, including filmmaking.
When you successfully complete this program, you may be eligible for entry into an RMIT postgraduate program or RMIT Masters by Research or Doctoral (PhD) program.
