Useful Insights on Journalism Skills for those Planning to Pursue a Degree in Journalism and Mass Communication

Journalism is an attractive but competitive sector that requires a certain type of person and skill set. If you are planning to pursue a degree in journalism and mass communication, here are some useful insights on journalism skills that you will find helpful:

Effective writing skills:

You must know how to play with words and produce error-free articles with all the facts that would pique the audience’s interest. As a student of journalism, you can start honing your writing skills by maintaining a blog or contributing to college magazines.

To get familiar with different writing styles, read as much as you can. Read books and articles by award-winning journalists. Make sure you read the newspaper regularly.

Research skills:

To  be a successful journalist, it is essential to have good research skills. This means being able to find reliable sources of information and being able to evaluate the accuracy of that information. Good research skills also involve being able to synthesise large amounts of information into a coherent story. Without these skills, it would be very difficult to produce quality articles.

Understanding what the reader wants:

To write engaging and relevant articles, you need to be able to anticipate the needs and interests of your audience. This requires taking the time to get to know your readership and paying attention to trends in both the news and society at large. Use the 5 Ws method (who, what, where, when and why) to understand what your readers want.

Investigative skills:

As a journalist, if you are working on a story you have to rely on the evidence and facts, but not on emotions. Good journalists analyse a situation objectively and avoid assumptions that can hinder their judgement. Also, asking questions to discover the reasons why a particular event occurred is important to develop investigative skills.

Digital journalism skills:

In today’s rapidly changing media landscape, it’s more important than ever for you as a journalist to have a strong understanding of digital media. With the rise of social media and online news platforms, you need to be able to tell stories in a way that resonates with digital audiences.

You must learn to

  • Transforming information into visually appealing infographics..
  • Live streaming video on social media from a mobile device.
  • Shoot and edit videos.
