COMN73-100: Professional Portfolio


Professional Portfolio is a twenty-week, forty five credit point subject available to Masters (Professional) students in the Faculty of Society & Design. This subject is experientially oriented and encourages students to develop their professional skills in a real-world environment. Students combine self-analysis and reflective learning skills with professional methodologies, to expand analytic and strategic thinking capabilities. All students complete a 2,000 word scoping document, and either undertake a work placement in Australia for 210 hours (which includes an employer’s report) and reflective journal (up to 5,000 words) OR complete a collaborative research project totalling up to 15,000 words.  All students submit a final professional portfolio collection of documents, highlighting their practical and theoretical expertise in their profession of choice.  The Professional Portfolio subject cannot be commenced until the student has successfully completed all twelve subjects of the Masters component of the degree.
