Dear aspirant




Thank you for approaching counsellors at Mera career guide and i am glad you seeked us to solve your career related query. to become a professor one needs a professional Doctorate qualification.




To get this PhD degree, i shall explain how you need to progress to studying a PhD.




  • Pass 10th class with a minimum first class


  • Pass 12th class with a minimum first class


  • then pass a basic bachelors degree with a minimum first class. This Bcahelors degree could be either a three year bachelors degree like the BA/ BSC/ BCOM or a four year bachelors degree like the BENG/ BTech. As you desire to become a professor of journalism, you need to pass a related Bachelors degree like the BA English with Journalism, BA English and communication, BA Journalism or the BA Journalism and media studies. Passing 10th, 12th and a basic bachelors degree is important as this is known as the 10+2+3 route which is the basic eligibility criteria for anyone to apply for a PhD in future.


  • Next you should consider studying a post graduation course like the MA English and Journalism, MA Journalism, MA Journalism with media studies, MA Journalism and mass communications. Make sure you definitely study a degree related to Journalism as a relevent degree is mandatory for considering you for a PhD seat. I have seen students from a variety of bachelor degree backgrounds like the BSc Psychology, BA Sociology, BA English, BA History and many more who divert their career line into Journalism to study MA Journalism. So in case you are also from a different bachelors background you can very well study a Masters degree in Journalism. So completing Journalism you can write pass and qualify on the UGC NET exam or UGC LEC exam and with this qualification you can work at colleges as a lecturer. After 5-8 years of experience you can be promoted as a Professor.


  • Else consider doing a PhD in Journalism if you like to. To apply for a PhD you require a UGC NET exam qualification. In India you can apply to study the PhD Mass communications and Journalism at majority of colleges. Completing PhD you are eligible to work as an Assistant Profesosr and then after 2-3 years you can be promoted to work as a professor of Journalism.
