You think it's good?

02

The pen is mightier than the sword. Or nowadays, pixels too, because you cant ignore the role of digital media in the journalism. Over the last few years, the world has witnessed an explosive growth in communication technology and media. As boundaries have blurred and the entire global community seems to have converged on the Internet, mass communication, media and journalism as streams of study and career become important.

What you need to have a career in these fields

Traditionally, people with above average communication skills and / or a degree in literature were considered to be ideal candidates for journalism and media studies. However, with the advent of technology, skilled professionals are required to work fast and efficiently to convey the message to the intended audience. Blogs and self-qualified ‘experts’ are a dime a dozen nowadays but it only takes someone with professional training to make the grade.

You should be inquisitive, alert, confident and perseverance. You should have a way with words and be able to express your thoughts to a varied audience clearly and concisely.

Job prospects

A professional qualification opens up doors for a career in TV, publishing, PR, journalism, publishing, advertising, films etc.
