Through a course of research and practice, students undertake their year-long project in Jazz & Improvisation under the guidance of their individual supervisor for presentation at the end of the academic year. The project outcome may take the form of a performance, exhibition, writing (poetry, fiction, script or other written literary forms), design, film, video, multimedia, CD, DVD or other new media technologies and modes of presentation. The major project can consist of single defined project or contributions to a number of projects depending on the nature of the discipline. At the time of selection the written outline of the proposed major project or major field of study is submitted. This provides the framework for developing the lines of inquiry taken by the student and the final creative work outcome.
