Journalism jobs are not only lucrative but exciting and respected at the same time. A career in journalism enables a candidate to travel to otherwise inaccessible places or meet the most hostile of personalities. Candidates may specialize in sports journalism, travel journalism, entertainment journalism, or investigative journalism according to one’s preference. Journalists though mostly appointed by the press, often get placements in electronic media houses and advertisement companies.
Journalism Courses are among the most popular study courses in India. Careers in journalism though they existed for long have very recently become focused. Institutes in metropolitan cities and state capitals are offering courses in journalism at both postgraduate and undergraduate levels. Many institutes also conduct online journalism courses.
Most of the journalism courses are clubbed with mass communications curriculum for a fuller coverage and wider professional flexibilities to candidates.
