Course Description:

Are you close to graduation and planning a career in communications, journalism, advertising, PR, broadcasting, digital media, or Internet content creation? Have you been studying media as a cultural form as your concentration and plan to continue, either in graduate school or or on your own? If so, this course is for you. In this course, you will consider "new economy" solutions to the changing media environment through readings, research, exploratory interviews, and discussions, develop or refine a resume and portfolio or web site of past work that will present you as someone who is prepared for an entry level job or to study the subject further, and develop a past paper or paper into a writing sample. This course is designed for students within 24 credits of graduation. It meets the Educational Planning requirement.

Prerequisites: At least three upper level courses in communications and/or media studies, OR work experience in communications, journalism, advertising, public relations, broadcasting, digital media, Internet content creation, or equivalent work experience.

Although this course gives "Educational Planning" credits, it is not designed to substitute for an Educational Planning or Planning and Finalizing the Degree Workshop in which the student creates a degree plan and writes a rationale essay.

This online course is offered through Online Learning. You can take this as an individual course or as part of an online degree program, with term starts in March, May, September, November and January. View current term offerings and all online courses. Click here to register for online courses.
