Students will work through stages to research, write and produce their professional project.  In the summer term, students will conduct initial research on the subject matter of their professional project, under the supervision of a faculty member.  In the fall term, students will normally begin the reporting and writing of their projects and receive further instruction in the development and writing of large journalistic projects. In the winter term, students will complete the production and publication of their projects.

Students are required to register for the professional project in the summer, fall and winter terms. An IP grade will be assigned until the final project is complete, at which time a final grade will be entered.
