A journalism degree may not have a mandatory educational requirement, but it can certainly increase your chances with potential employers in the field of journalism. Journalism programs are a great way to learn the fundamentals of the job early on. A degree from a bachelor’s degree program at an accredited journalism school shows practical knowledge and skills, which signals to employers that you are well prepared for the job, and serious about it as a full-time career. Those who aren’t journalism majors may be creative writing or communication studies students before pursuing a career as a journalist.
