The Faculty of Fine Arts and Music has proposed changes to the Master of Fine Arts by research courses currently offered. If this change is approved, the Master of Fine Arts courses by research will become one course: the Master of Fine Arts. This will not change the course entry requirements, nor will it change the actual courses. We are doing this to simplify our course offerings and make it easier to distinguish research Masters from coursework Masters. If you have already applied for entry to a research Masters in 2019, your application will be assessed and it is likely offers will be for the new course.
For over 10 years the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development has connected Indigenous visual, design and performing artists with pathways to their future in the arts.
From 2016 we will be offering a Master of Fine Arts in Indigenous Arts and Culture. This course offers the opportunity to undertake independent research and develop advanced skills in Indigenous Arts and Culture. A multidisciplinary course, students’ creative works can take the form of performances, writing, film, video and multimedia (cultural or otherwise). You will be supported by a supervisor and create a final thesis which can be a combination of Major Project and Dissertation.
