    This flagship unit provides the student with an opportunity to use their skills in gathering, shaping, editing and delivering stories as part of an internship with a media outlet or sporting organisation. The year long unit will provide sports media students to work under the supervision of a professional practitioner where they will be exposed to and involved in the process of planning and writing news stories. As part of the experience students will produce a portfolio of their publications providing evidence of their writing style and news gathering ability.
