This course prepares students for transition to professional employment and/or further studies. Students attend a pre-semester induction and core module to refresh prior media knowledge of theoretical and regulatory frameworks and research uses in the sector. Independent pathway workshops occur mid-semester, followed by individual consultations, and a peer-to-peer workshop in Week 12. Students conduct an individual desktop research project using public domain materials. Two research training workshops cover the design, theoretical positioning and conduct of secondary research; evidence and argument; ethical and legal issues; and the compositional features of a 5000 word research report. Students work under academic supervision to complete their industry study, consolidating and advancing research capabilities developed in advanced-level Media core courses. Research projects proceed following approval from academic staff. They can be designed as a preliminary study for future research.
