There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
Anti-requisite(s): 57021 Journalism Internship


This subject involves a sustained collaborative, problem-solving interaction between UTS, the student and a media industry 'client'. Students undertake a project informed by detailed discussions with the 'client' and their university supervisor and work to solve a real-life problem using multiple journalistic and related skills. The learning is largely self-directed and involves students working in small groups. It may also be possible for students to work on individual projects, with the approval of the subject coordinator. Students use skills in research, reporting and editing and gain a hands-on experience in other areas of practice, such as audience development. There is a meet-and-greet with several prospective industry 'clients'. Industry clients range from journalism start-ups, new and established media, not-for profit groups and media operations closely aligned to UTS, such as 2SER and Central News.
