Pathways to the profession: a study in integrating journalism degree programs with the world of work

Bowman, Leo F. & Lund, Ann (2007) Pathways to the profession: a study in integrating journalism degree programs with the world of work. In ATN Evaluation and Assessment Conference 2007.


At QUT, the journalism program has developed a successful work integrated learning approach that integrates learning, teaching and assessment with the goal of providing student pathways into industry. This paper will outline the structure and approach of the program to clearly identify the reasons for its success, and also to outline the particular benefits that this program has for universities that run professional/vocational degree programs. In particular, it shows how it is possible to inculcate a ‘professional stance’ in programs dedicated to professional vocational outcomes.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
