In their final course, third year RMIT Journalism students get an opportunity to bring all their training together by writing a multimedia feature on a topic of their choice. They either work on the story on their own or by collaborating with other students, utilising their investigative reporting, data visualisation, writing and digital production skills.

In their second year, RMIT Journalism students report on a topic or an issue for the whole semester in the Journalism Technologies course. As a part of this reporting exercise, they produce explainers that allow them to understand and explain the topic to a general audience. These explainers also allow them to practice their research and reporting skills as well as their digital storytelling and production techniques.
In their second year, RMIT Journalism students work on their collaborative reporting skills to produce multimedia stories that tackle the most important issues we are facing in Australia and globally. Through these projects, they gain investigative and research skills, the ability to work effectively and efficiently as a team and an opportunity to identify their strengths so that they know how to best contribute to their team, for their newsroom and to the world of journalism.
