A bachelor’s degree is the typical education requirement for journalism positions, and many prospective journalists choose to pursue a degree in journalism. A bachelor’s in journalism teaches you how to write for different distribution media. It also provides you with an understanding of journalistic ethics and fundamental methods of investigation – how to cultivate sources, conduct personal interviews and search news databases. Some programs are divided into broadcast, print, photojournalism, and public relations specializations. Because many journalists are freelancers, you may want to consider courses in marketing and business administration as well.
