Master of Creative Arts

Duration:2 Years Intakes:Mar, Jul

Expand your understanding of historical and contemporary ideologies that shape the creative arts through a Master of Creative Arts at Deakin.

The Master of Creative Arts allows you to focus your studies on one of six creative areas: visual arts, photography, animation and motion capture, visual communication design, dance or drama. But that doesn’t mean your knowledge will be limited to your specialisation. Throughout the course, you’ll be studying complementary disciplines and practising alongside creative thinkers from different backgrounds, broadening your understanding of creativity and arming you with transferable skills that prepare you for any creative pursuit.

The multidisciplinary aspect of the course could see you specialising in dance while taking an elective unit in film writing, ultimately leading to the production of a dance film for your final creative project.

While core study areas will be tailored to your specialisation, there are common threads throughout each pathway that set you up to be a versatile creative practitioner. Build transferable skills that employers value, like imaginative thinking, problem solving and creative collaboration, and discover what it takes to be adaptable and resourceful – two key attributes of the modern creative.

Strengthen your creative repertoire with elective units. Your electives can play to your strengths, or help you upskill in an unfamiliar discipline. Some of your elective options include:

  • Writing with the Camera
  • Documentary Production Practice
  • Art Marketing
  • Introduction to Digital Photography
  • Design Thinking and Problem Solving

The course provides lots of practical experience, including sought-after internship opportunities, allowing you to hone your creative craft in real-world settings. You’ll work on industry-relevant creative projects, applying theoretical frameworks in teams and as an individual. And you’ll complete a major creative work in professional standard facilities, including TV broadcast studios, dance and drama studios, a professional photographic light studio, visual arts and design studios and dedicated gallery spaces. On top of that, your creative research projects will train you in practical research skills that benefit your everyday life, as well as your career.
