The course builds upon the Bachelor of Creative Arts Honours (or equivalent) and the Masters of Arts, as students gain an advanced understanding of creative arts research methods that can be critically applied to developing a substantial body of original creative work and an exegesis. The purpose of this course is for students to gain expertise in critical evaluation, analysis and reflection in practice-led research methodologies in order to enhance the quality of their original contributions to creative arts research. This course addresses a diverse range of creative arts research methods within historical, theoretical, cultural, ethical and contemporary practice contexts. The key learning outcome is an understanding of the scope of practice-led research from local to international contexts, and its application to individual creative work.
