Masters in Journalism

When one decides to study for a Masters in Journalism, one concentrates on the process of finding news and then delivering it to the public. Students learn the theory and the practice of print journalism, as well as editing, layout, design, and reporting. The law and ethics of journalism are also taught. Exams are given to determine if students have a competent understanding of the key concepts. A dissertation related to the advancement in one’s chosen area of journalism is required.

More and more students are looking to online programs instead of the conventional on-campus programs. Many people who decide to pursue post-graduate work already have jobs and families and cannot afford to move for a two-year program. Online Journalism Master’s Programs are considered just as prestigious as the conventional programs by most academics and university administrators. If you are looking to impress your peers and guarantee a fair shot at tenured positions, you should certainly pursue an online PhD from a well-respected, conventional school that also offers online courses.

Now is a great time for one to pursue post-graduate degrees in journalism. The truth is that the field has changed so much over the past decade that universities are requiring new thinkers with fresh perspectives to take over the conventional journalism courses. Professors who have just earned PhD’s in journalism find themselves up for early tenure. There are also opportunities to earn extra money by teaching summer and winter break classes. Professors of journalism may also pursue their own research and work to develop their own particular fields of journalistic study.
