A diploma in journalism could prepare you for a career as a reporter and correspondent, broadcast news analyst, public relations specialist, or similar career. Classes may include Journalism Methods, Journalism Laws and Ethics, New Media, Broadcast Reporting, Feature Story Writing, Magazine Editing, and more.
As the scope of journalism grows to include new media such as blogs, webcasts, and the like, journalism programs are increasingly incorporating the study and creation of these media into their curriculums. You should still receive a strong foundation, however, in the traditional methods of journalism such as reporting, writing and editing. You may also choose to specialize in broadcast journalism, such as reporting for or anchoring a television or radio news program.
