Bring your vision to life on screen
Our primary postgraduate offering is the Master of Screen Production, which offers a unique capacity for the production of longform projects. Within this program there is greater focus on the ability to specialise in your chosen field of filmmaking, often through the creation of feature length productions.
With a high level interest in international engagement and collaboration, undertaking postgraduate study at Griffith Film School will allow you to leverage our strong industry links, mentoring programs, master classes, guest lectures and renowned artists in residence to reach your full potential.
Master of Screen Production
Undertake practical work in a strong collaborative environment with screenings and discussions. Take advantage of work placements or internships to combine theory and practice. Your acquired research skills will help you respond effectively to the changing nature of the screen production industry.
The PhD is Griffith’s premier research training degree. It is awarded for a thesis (or a series of published papers), drafted under supervision, which makes an original, significant, and extensive contribution to knowledge and understanding in your field of study.
This degree can offer you formal recognition for your work if you are an established researcher and do not already hold a doctoral level qualification.
This professional development degree will help you extend your studio research and practice and make original conceptual advancements in your discipline. Gain research skills and the ability to articulate a theoretical position within a visual arts discourse.
Specialist Masters by Research
These specialist degrees combine coursework with professional and/or artistic practice.
Graduate Certificates provide graduates from all professional disciplines with a solid understanding of their choses visual arts field. They provide a comprehensive foundation for future postgraduate study. At the completion of a Graduate Certificate, artists, photographers, designers and filmmakers emerge with a richness of experience and cross-disciplinary skills.
This program is designed to provide graduates in the visual arts discipline with the opportunity to undertake advanced study in research methodology and to undertake supervised research work in the discipline area appropriate to their research trajectory.
Research study abroad
International students currently enrolled in a research degree in a university overseas may undertake a research project at Griffith University for one to three semesters, under the research study abroad program.
You’ll be able to study in any research area, provided supervision and resources are available. Credit gained at Griffith is transferred toward the degree at your home institution, with that institution’s agreement.
