The Late-Breaking News on Journalism Programs

Investigative journalism, business journalism, and even fashion journalism all have one thing in common: You have to know how to find, and tell, the story. This may involve conducting interviews, research, and keen observation. You may need to write reports for a website, newspaper, or magazine, or appear on TV as a broadcast journalist.

Do You Need a Journalism Degree?

Employers tend to value experience above all else, but getting a journalism degree can help you get your first job. You should also take on journalism internships, summer jobs, and work at your school's newspaper or radio station. If you want to specialize in a specific type of journalism, then take courses in that subject, too. For instance, to work in business journalism you need courses in finance and economics. Fashion design classes can help you find a job in fashion journalism. Sharpen your research skills for investigative journalism, since those stories sometimes take weeks to break.

The Post Journalism Degree Story

Expect tough competition. As of 2008, 53 percent of journalists worked for newspapers and periodicals and with the trouble in that industry from online competition, employment is predicted to decline by 8 percent from 2008 to 2018. The 21 percent of journalists who enter radio and television broadcasting will face a 4 percent decline due to consolidation and a drop in advertising revenue due to the recession. Salaries vary depending on the specific field of journalism. The middle 50 percent of reporters and correspondents earn between $25,760 and $52,160, while the middle 50 percent of broadcast news analysts earn $32,000 to $88,630.
