Description

This subject draws together the threads of all other subjects in the Journalism major in a final project that showcases students' skills across platforms, while developing the professional identity required for graduate journalists. This project includes both journalism production and critical reflection. It may include producing individual pieces of journalism and taking on individual editing and publishing roles for CentralNews (online video) or 2SER (radio broadcast), producing/writing a series, or producing/writing one story of an in-depth investigation. To commence the subject, students develop an individual proposal/plan for a final project. Each student finalises their portfolio for presentation at a viva examined by professionals. Students are taught and assessed on relevant aspects of media law.
