An education in journalism is more than just knowing how to write for newspaper or broadcast. According to Linda Perlstein, the National Education Writers Association‘s public editor, a journalism education can lead you to success in a variety of fields.
Thomas Toch, a former journalist at U.S. News & World Report and Education Week said, “I think there’s plenty of demand for the kind of thoughtful reporting and writing the best journalists do about education or any field.”
Writers with a journalistic education background are creating grant proposals, writing speeches, and research reports for foundations who use the reports to track their spending.
Well, so much for journalism education dying out due to technology. Looks like it’s going to continue to benefit its students in more ways than one.
