This is the capstone unit in the Bachelor of Communication in Media and Public Affairs. Staff will facilitate students' participation in a semester-long project, in conjunction with relevant professional organisations, to address a contemporary political communication issue. Students will be required to call upon the skills they have developed in research methods, problem analysis, and report writing to deliver well researched, creative, timely, strategic and thoughtful responses to a real-life public issue or problem.
On the completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. identify and critically analyse public and political issues and problems and develop innovative yet realistic responses;
2. demonstrate highly developed research, critical analysis and problem-solving skills;
3. engage in complex ethical questions, strategic thinking, and problem solving;
4. demonstrate high level written, oral and visual professional communication skills using a range of digital platforms;
5. present complex information in a clearly-written report format.
