Degrees in journalism equip students to work in various media as reporters, photojournalists, editors, researchers and commentators. However, journalism graduates may also seek out related careers as writers, lawyers, teachers, advertising executives, public relations or foreign affairs officers.
There are few schools of graduate journalism in Canada, but such a degree is a possibility for graduates who wish to consider management level or teaching positions in journalism. Postgraduate work in print culture, media studies, semiotics or communications studies are also options.
