Projects may include, but are not limited to, in-depth media projects, thesis papers, marketing plans and documentaries. Students will create both the written proposal, as well as the critical/research/conceptual component of their project during this class. Proposal must be approved by Mass Communication Department to be able to move on to Capstone Project. Prerequisites: MASC 3270 (may be taken concurrently) and Senior status.
