Journalism seems like a tough way to make a living. Everyone knows that the average beat reporter doesn’t earn very much income, but he or she does get to see and experience a lot of interesting things. In fact, journalism is one of the fastest growing degree programs.
Journalism schools today also teach broadcast journalism, print journalism, and mass communications; some even teach advertising and public relations classes. Most journalism students not only learn the how and why of professional writing, but also the legal and ethical aspects of the industry.
