The Bachelor of Media Arts (Honours) is a one-year advanced undergraduate degree for high-achieving students, designed for those who have completed an undergraduate degree in Media Arts (or cognate area) and wish to extend their critical and creative skills in media arts contexts. It enables students to advance their knowledge by developing a significant practice-led research project.

Graduates develop a detailed understanding of the relationship between theory and practice in contemporary media arts contexts, providing pathways to higher-degree research programs such as a Master of Fine Arts or PhD, as well as a range of careers in the arts, media and cultural sectors.
