These projects are a culminating capstone option for candidates in the Media and Communication master’s program.

The other option, a thesis, is currently stored in JEWLScholar's Theses and Dissertations Collection.

Professional projects are usually composed of a written introduction, the product (e.g. documentary, series of journalistic articles, public relations campaign book and materials), and a written conclusion.
