What can I do with my degree in Journalism?

Further study


At the University of Kent the NCTJ (National Council for the Training of Journalists) Diploma in Journalism is studied alongside the undergraduate course and this training is highly regarded by employers within the journalism industry. Some Journalism graduates do go on to take further training at postgraduate level.  This could be to gain specialist knowledge in a particular area that could support them in their journalism career, for example business, politics, law, international relations.

For those looking to move into other career areas, options for further study could include teaching, law, marketing and public relations.
