Professional Presence: The Writer's Website

Course Code: BCPW 4502

Academic Year: 2023-2024

In this course, students create a professional online portfolio/website and learn best practices in selecting the creative samples that best represent their work from past semesters. Through review and critique of current portfolio trends as well as exercises that explore personal branding, students learn about the expectations of their chosen field(s) and make decisions on how to position themselves for entry. Students also create a complementary print portfolio to take to in-person meetings and polish their presence in professional networking spaces. A portfolio review session with industry professionals provides feedback and a real-world deadline for students.
