Having learned to write news, conduct interviews and make reports for radio and television, SAJ students began work on their most important project – the Final Work. To achieve a good result, young people will have to comply with and implement all the good practices they have learned during the courses at the School of Advanced Journalism, as well as to demonstrate objectivity, accuracy, originality, fairness, inspiration and neutrality. The public presentation of the works will be held on May 30 and 31.
The final work is a product made by the student independently, but under the guidance of a tutor chosen from among SAJ trainers. Students have three weeks, during which they will choose topics, research them, film, cut, lay out, write and edit texts.
Out of the 11 students of the 2016-2017 graduating class, four will write articles for print, two will try their powers in making TV reports, four other chose to make radio reports, and one student will write an article for the Internet.
Final works will be presented to a commission that will appreciate them according to the following criteria:
- Timeliness and relevance of the chosen theme.
- Good structure and completeness of the material.
- Objectivity, neutrality, and impartiality.
- Balance of sources.
- Compliance with the rules of professional ethics.
- Separation of facts from opinions.
- Originality and inspiration.
The best works will be posted on the School's website, www.scoaladejurnalism.md.
