Note: This unit is available in your third year of study. Entry to the unit is competitive, and is subject to approval by the unit coordinator. To apply for entry into the unit and relevant grant consideration where appropriate, please email the unit coordinator. This unit offers you the opportunity to undertake supervised fieldwork. You will develop your understanding of the changing creative environment and your ability to map cultural, industrial and technological changes. You will also be introduced to methods of engagement and fieldwork in an interdisciplinary setting. Fieldtrip opportunities change between semesters and years, and students will apply for a place for an advertised fieldtrip. Available fieldtrips will be advertised via the School of Creative Arts and Media disciplines and will involve a selection process.
