This unit is designed to extend the skills acquired by students in radio writing, radio production and presentation skills and to provide an opportunity for students to gain experience in a workplace environment and to work independently as freelance practitioners.
Attention will be paid to the presentation and marketing of the project. The unit is designed to develop a major radio program to completion and prepare it for broadcast on-air. Students will be expected to work closely with a supervisor throughout the semester.
