Dear aspirant

Thank you for approaching counsellors at CareerGuide.com. Nice to see your interest in journalism career. What are you doing currently? Are you at school or college? If you are studying at school now then you should make sure you study English until 10th class and as well as study English at 12th level too. English is the main subject for studying journalism degree. After 12th class you can apply for BA Journalism degree or even BA Journalism with mass communications.

Top colleges in India offering BA Journalism/ journalism with mass communications are
  • Lady Shri ram college for women - BA Journalism - University of Delhi - New Delhi
  • National Institute of fashion technology NIFT - BA Mass communication - Chennai - Tamilnadu
  • Ramnarain Ruia college - BA Journalism - University of Mumbai
  • Indraprastha college for women - BA Journalism - University of Delhi

  • Delhi college of arts and commerce - BA Journalism - Delhi

Apart from the colleges listed above 'IIJNM Indian institute of journalism and new media' is also a new institute introduced for mass media in India and it is also regarded as a very good private college by many of the news papers. Amity institute of mass media and communications, MOP Vaishnava Nungambakam Chennai, Christ college Bangalore, Mount caramel college Bangalore, Manipal academy Bangalore, Madras Christian College University of Madras Chennai, NBA school of mass communication Delhi, Oxford college Bangalore, Indira school of communication ISC Pune, Symbiosis institute of Media and communication Pune, Asian college of journalism, Jamia Millia Islamia university and Manav Rachna International university Faridabad are other set of good colleges other than the government aided listed above.

If you are in school then please select BA Journalism course at college, if you already completed some other bachelors degree and want to divert to journalism then you can definitely apply for Masters in journalism and mass communication. If you have very good interest in writing then this is the right course for you with no doubt. The cost depends on whether you are studying at private or government approved colleges.

Career in Journalism: You can get jobs in print media like newspapers, magazines, journals, tabloids, books, ebooks, website content writing, and dailies. You can also find jobs in radio, television and internet.
