This unit is designed to enable an intensive application of communication research, writing, production and/or presentation skills at an advanced research or professional level either in a communications discipline area, in a work experience internship and/or in a chosen format. You will be expected to explore complex issues with an awareness of the associated legal and ethical implications.

At the completion of this unit students will be able to have:

  •  a broad understanding of issues in the media theory and the place of new media theory, providing the skills and knowledge which are the basis of current communication practices.
  •  the ability to map the creation of a project from concept to finished product delivered to an audience in a planned setting. Affective outcomes (eg attitudes, values, and ethics) are an inherent result of working collaboratively towards a professional outcome. Within the production environment, skills-based outcomes (eg: problem solving etc) are key to the daily challenges involved in creating an audience-based product with technologically-based gathering of content.

The units specific aims and outcomes are to provide a professional qualification for those who wish to work in the creative and communication industries.
