Moving Image

The course structure requires the completion of a cohesive sequence of core units of study supplemented by a range of electives and a capstone unit that unites the themes of the whole course in a major moving image project.

As part of your studies, you complete a compulsory praxis component of study that can be undertaken as:

(a) an industry placement
(b) a professional project that delivers your final moving image project in one of several professional industry formats or
(c) a research project consisting of an academically rigorous written component that assists you to prepare for a higher degree research pathway.

This course is part of an embedded sequence including the graduate diploma and master’s degree.
