Syllabus:

This course prepares students for the transition from undergraduate degree to professional employment and/or further study. Students choose one of two pathways. Pathway A involves a self-organised industry placement of 100 hours, and an opportunity to gain experience in a media industry sector by working with a supervisor in an internal or external host organisation. All placement paperwork must be completed and signed off prior to commencement. Pathway B allows students to design and undertake a self-directed desktop research project using public domain materials and focusing on an industry-relevant research question. The project can be a standalone piece of desktop research, or can be designed as a preliminary study for future research. Through industry and peer-to-peer networking activities, supported by a seminar program, Media Industry Transitions provides opportunities for students to put into practice and extend what they have learned throughout their degree.
