Broadcast journalists typically have a bachelor’s degree in journalism, broadcast journalism or interactive media. Students take classes in production, scripts, newswriting, media studies and mass communications. In practicum courses, students frequently work in on-campus TV studios, radio stations and editing suites, where they practice all aspects of contributing to news programs. Understanding not only how to write, but how to edit, produce, research, operate cameras and perform other broadcast journalism functions will make graduates well-rounded. It’s also a good idea to understand podcasting and other online broadcasting initiatives.
