The Bachelor of Media and Communication (honours) program is usually done full time.
Semester one consists of a research strategies class, where you are introduced to skills around planning, project management, writing, editing, bibliographies, finding relevant resources, and different research methodologies. This class is two hours a week. There is a research lab, which is themed, and is three hours per week. Here you investigate the labs research theme in detail, using a variety of methods, and this usually influences your own honours research in some way. You also enrol in a research practice subject. This has no classes at all and is an allocation of time for you to be working on your research. Finally, there is media and communication futures. This is three hours per week and is a survey of recent theoretical work in critical theory. In semester one there is then a total of 8 hours of classes per week.
Semester two has only one scheduled class. This is the semester two research lab. This is the same group of students and teacher that you had in semester one, and the lab continues the same theme. Semester two lab largely works to support and push along your honours research. You are also enrolled in a semester two research practice subject which is how we allocate time to your research. In semester two then there is only one three hour class timetabled. Supervision is not time tabled, and most of the meetings with your supervisor should happen during semester two.
