Dear Aspirant,

For becoming an Editor or getting a job in the editorial department of a news agency (print or tv or web), generally the below qualifications are preferred:

  1. BA / MA in English
  2. BA / MA in Political Sciences
  3. BA / MA in Social Sciences
  4. Bachelors in Journalism
  5. Bachelors in Mass Communication
  6. Bachelors in Media Management

For all the above English / native language proficiency is a MUST.

Whether you have the right interest and aptitude for becoming an Editor depends on your inner capabilities and passion.

To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo a online psychometric test from CareerGuide which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which stream is good for you.

Best wishes,

Dr. Anand Wadadekar

Hi There,

Interesting to know that you wish to be an editor and also supported by your potentials. A very rare combination.

As such to be an editor, one needs to have:
Good command over languages ( Basic Language knowledge is a must)
Good command over writing
Communicative & Expressive ( Verbally and in writing)
Analytic Ability ( Reasoning capacity)
Comprehending ability

Once the above mentioned capabilities are fulfilled, then one can take the support of their educational qualification.

An editor, mostly needs to be from the mass-media field.
Here you could opt for a BMM ( Bachelors in Mass-media) and choose Journalism as your specialization.

After graduation, you could opt for either PG Diploma in Mass-media or an MBA in Journalism.

But please note that, apart from your potentials and qualifications, you need to have some portfolio ready, so that you can land a job easier than others.
So best would be to begin early.
You can begin by editing your college magazine. Start writing blogs and take expert opinions.

Hope this helps you in future.

Wish you good luck..........
