  • Overview

    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, taking on individual editing and publishing roles on Reportage or 2SER, or designing and producing a pilot issue of new publications. To commence the subject students produce a critical reflection of their achievements so far and develop an individual 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.
