Assessment methods range from practical production tasks to traditional essay assignments. You produce a professional-level multimedia public relations campaign addressing a range of styles, genres, platforms and audiences. You produce an essay on a topic related to public relations theory and a formal business report on a new media application in an organisational context. You write an academic essay which helps provide a broader context for the practical work undertaken for your Final Project.
