California Journalism Degree Programs

Journalism Classes in California


Students do not just attend California's colleges and universities based on their academic reputations alone. Many are drawn by the stunning beauty that has made California famous all over the world. Few states have managed to meld natural beauty with man-made creations as seamlessly as California has. With gorgeous coastlines, expansive vineyards, ancient forests, and diverse climates, California has much to offer regardless of what type of environment suits you best.
If you want to be a journalist, whether for TV, a newspaper or website, a journalism degree is a great place to start. But a journalism degree is also the foundation of many other careers as well. Freelance writing, public relations and any other industry that demands well thought-out ideas and clear writing will be hugely enhanced by a journalism degree.

The base of any journalism college degree or training course is writing the standard newspaper article--the infamous who, what, when and why of a news event. By learning that basic skill, you also learn basic researching: what needs to be known in order for you to claim that you know it. And once you've tackled the research, you are taught how to put it into succinct prose so that readers can easily understand the information you are reporting that can be complicated at times.

With these skills, you can probably begin a career writing for newspapers, beginning with small town publications and working your way to bigger markets. Or, similarly, you can find an entry-level job in a small market TV news department and begin an exciting career there.

But publicity or corporate relations is available to you, too. PR departments spend their days targeting journalists and therefore look for people who have a background in journalism--people who can speak the journalist language. In fact, and some say this isn't such a great thing, the line between publicity and journalism is becoming increasingly blurred.

But whatever you choose to do, a journalism degree is the perfect way to take your natural curiosity of the world and put it to good use in your career.
