A research intensive university, James Cook University has an enviable reputation in a number of scientific areas. Its decision to incorporate the creative arts within the traditional PhD rather than establishing a separate degree (eg. a DCA) provided a considerable challenge in creating a model for practice-based disciplines. The model was developed and has evolved over a ten year period, longer than any other university in Australia, and has proved to be both robust and successful (approaching 70 completions). It is applicable across a broad range of creative arts disciplines and has been lauded by Gillies (1999), Shepherd (2001) and Weston (2002) for its capacity to provide rigorous research training consistent with the purposes of doctoral level research as well as affording individual artists, designers, performers, writes, filmmakers etc the scope to make a quantum leap in their practice. The paper outlines the generic underpinnings of the model in practice.
