    News junkies, read all about it! Are you always looking for the truth? Are you always sniffing out every angle of a situation and able to hear all sides? You’d do well as a journalist. The field includes writers, editors, photojournalists, newscasters, and online content producers. The diversity of media outlets include newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and the Internet, though many graduates venture to public relations, copywriting, technical writing and freelance writings careers. Regardless of the type of media, you’ll be expected to hone interviewing, writing, research, reporting and editing skills.

    Typical courses include broadcast news writing, magazine writing, mass communications, and media law. From founding father Benjamin Franklin who founded The Pennsylvania Gazette to influential journalists such as Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, Barbara Walters, Katie Couric, and Cokie Roberts, you’ll be in good company. Best-selling novelist Anna Quindlen is also a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.
