At ECU, we are committed to undertaking high quality research and offer a number of scholarships to students undertaking a Doctoral or Master by research degree.
This doctoral course in the field of performing arts provides an opportunity for original, highly accomplished practitioners, performers and artists who aspire towards a more extensive research and creative profile.
Although this is a discrete award relating to the performing arts, opportunities will exist for cross-disciplinary study through joint supervision of the research. Candidates will be expected to research, devise and produce substantial new works of art, and/or develop new approaches to arts practice.
They will also be expected to provide an appropriate record of their research through a written thesis based on their research activities, their artistic ideas and the exploratory processes. Through the thesis, students will be encouraged to develop models of practical and theoretical enquiry appropriate to the arts profession, based on a broad understanding of the theories which underpin contemporary practices, performances and exhibitions of modern art.
