Creative Practice Higher Degrees
UNE encourages Higher Degree Research (HDR) in creative practice for the Master of Philosophy (Arts) and the Doctor of Philosophy.
Creative practice projects must include two interrelated components: a creative work and a written exegesis.
The types of creative work that may be considered include, but not limited to:
|English, Media and Communications, Writing||Theatre||Music|
|Fiction||Theatre Performance (which might include acting, directing, devised work, physical theatre, documentary theatre, multi/intermedial performance, puppetry)||Music performance|
|Non-fiction (e.g. life writing)||Playwriting and/or adaptation||Exhibition|
|Creative non-fiction||Design and/or scenography||Notated or graphic score|
|Adaptation||Drama pedagogy||Video recording|
|Other new media technologies and modes of presentation|
Admission to candidature depends on the availability of supervision and resources.
Supervision is potentially available from staff in the disciplinary areas of English, Media and Communications, and Writing; Music; and Theatre and Performance. Co-supervision may be drawn from other Schools.
UNE does not provide film, video, and music production facilities so creative work in these areas would need access to independent resources.
It is assumed that candidates entering these HDR courses will already have the knowledge and techniques needed to embark on advanced research and relate creative practice to scholarship in their chosen field.
Supervision assists candidates to apply their skills to complete a project that extends and disseminates new knowledge.
The Higher Degree Research programs in Creative Practice are administered by Arts:
