Internship Project (MECO3672)

UNIT OF STUDY

A follow-up to MECO3671 Media and Communications Internship, this unit integrates the vocational aspects of the internship with high-level research skills. MECO3672 is based around the production of a Research essay based on issues arising from the internship. In addition to all-class lectures, students attend a 'cycle' of four seminars, which represents a facilitated process within which students analyse, discuss and refine their research approaches and questions. Students will also be expected to interact with their peers and contribute to collegial development of projects.
