Pro

  • Journalism school can help you get internships in media. Rosa Hayes. "Knowing the Pros and Cons of a Degree in Journalism." Associated Content. February 25th, 2008: "Journalism degrees can help you to get internships at newsrooms or some other media source so that you can have the experience that most employers will be looking for. Having an internship at a local journalism market will help you to grow your journalist experience and to maybe even get a job working at that location once you have finished with your journalism degree."

Con

  • Journalism degree does not guarantee job or higher salary. Rosa Hayes. "Knowing the Pros and Cons of a Degree in Journalism." Associated Content. February 25th, 2008: "With all of this being said, there are a lot of disadvantages of going to school to be a journalist. Some will go into school for journalism thinking that they will land a job right out of college and this may not be the case. In fact, there are more people who don't get a job for up to a year after completing their degree than those who land a job straight out of college. [...] A journalism degree does not guarantee you a job nor does it make your salary go up any higher. Some employers don't even care if you have a degree while others look for a degree only."
