In order to plan entry into the arts industry discipline of their area of expertise, or to plan for post-graduate pathways of study, graduand students need to develop a sound and comprehensive macro understanding of the structures, protocols and processes of their intended sector. Depending on their intended pathway of progression, graduand students may need to develop a working understanding of principles of business practice, of professional representation, and/or options for post-graduate study.
Students enrolled in this course will be mentored by staff from their specific disciplines in developing business, entrepreneurial and strategic knowledge for effective and sustainable entry into their intended career or post-graduate pathway. Students may negotiate to complete industry entry-level work or complete an industry secondment as a part of the work necessary to complete assessment requirements for this course. The culmination of this course requires students to compile a professional portfolio that effectively represents their work, capabilities and professional standards and qualities as a resource for their entry into professional or post-graduate practice.
