So You Want to be a Journalist? Here’s What it Takes

So you aspire to become a journalist and are thinking of getting a relevant degree in the subject? You have two options – either take a course in Journalism or go for a specialized degree in Broadcast Journalism.

Let’s say you choose a regular Journalism degree.

Now imagine this – after 3 years of studying, you get a job as a reporter or sub-editor and you are covering a news story. You wrote the article overnight and the newspaper published it in the morning next day. But the people already know about it the day before on television. Or they’ve already checked the story on a news app and they find nothing novel in your article.

Big disappointment!

Moreover, people are interested in listening to expert opinions rather than someone who is just presenting the facts to them. Gone are the days of ‘conventional journalism’. People have become much smarter, thanks to the advancements in digital technology.

Why should you consider a Broadcast Journalism course?

So what you need today is a specialized course that not only builds a strong foundation, but also allows you to make a mark in a fast-paced digital and broadcast space. A degree in Broadcast Journalism is the perfect fit. It starts with picking the right school where you can learn to express your opinions and become a multitasker as opposed to just presenting facts and figures.
