Hi

Journalism is the most responsible career your interest in it is really appreciable.Its more important than theoretical knowledge.

If you have really interest in the journalism course,then after completion of your 10+2 you can go for B.A course.

B.A course is one of the graduation course.The duration this course is 3 years.

To become a journalist its not necessary to become a graduate.

you have the right skills and knowledge then you can fulfill your dream of becoming a journalist.
of course you must have academic excellence.

Some of the news rooms ask for practical skills rather than the academic performance since in journalism its all about how you do the work practically.
It depends upon editors on what basis they want hire.

How ever a degree in journalism is a necessity since everyone is asking degree.

So after completion of your 10+2 you have to take the B.A(Honors)/you have to do graduation in mass communication and journalism from any recognized university.

Good luck.

One can join journalism colleges as full time or while doing graduation can do distance journalism. It is not necessary to be graduate but it can help . We must see, hear around us and write letters to editors in various newspapers as starter. This will let us know the problems and good things happenings in the society. Afterall Journalist is striving for the good of society he has a great responsibility which needs to be cater.

many colleges across india offer undergraduate courses, Delhi University has BA in journalism admission i thru entrance test, symbiosis is another choice... have to crack entrance exam. to prepare for entrance of media institutes/colleges exam, read Media Hive's e-Guide for journalism & mass comm entrace (Rs 100; PDF format) and Nuances of Journalistic Writings (hardcopy; discounted price Rs 126).. I think the e-Guide and the book will help u in the entrance exams. u can order them at [email protected] or 9911273924

First of all, you need to complete class 12 with good score. You need to have good grip over the English language and general knowledge. There are several universities that offer the course like Shobhit University, Institute of Media and Technology, Sikkim Manipal University, Asian Institute of Film and Television to name a few. Pearl Academy Mumbai and Presidency College, Bangalore are one of the leading institutes that offer course in Journalism. After class 12, you can always take up certain courses like B.sc in Sports Journalism, B.A in Professional Journalism, B.A in Investigative Journalism, B.Sc in Trade Journalism and B.sc in Fashion Journalism. There are institutes which offers good placements too.
Times School of Journalism
Film and Television Institute of India
