Communications is a competitive field where there are more candidates than there are jobs for entry-level positions. Therefore, applicants with a degree in public relations, communications, journalism, or advertising will have an advantage.

Since it is a wide and competitive field, a lot of students choose to focus on a special medium, target group or organizational type. Future job responsibilities depend mainly on employer and education. Some companies put a lot of effort into communications, and run large departments where work is shared among staff while others use minimal efforts and have only one person doing everything. This means that sometimes a generalist is demanded, covering text production, communication strategies and layout programs and sometimes a specialist is demanded, focusing on, for instance, only one target group.

Careers in Media/Communication/Information

Career opportunities in communications span many industries and professions, such as:

  • TV, Radio and Sports Announcers
  • Broadcast and Sound Engineering Technicians and Radio Operators
  • Language Interpreters and Translators
  • News Analysts, Reporters, and Correspondents
  • Photography
  • Public Relations Specialists
  • Television, Video, and Motion Picture Camera Operators and Editors
  • Writing and Editing

Although there are no standard educational requirements for jobs in this sector, employers in many cases prefer to hire job candidates with college degrees and some experience. Common majors include public relations, journalism, communications, and advertising. Experience generally comes from internships. Work in a field related to the employer's industry is also helpful. Sought-after skills in applicants for media, communication, and information jobs include:

  • the ability to communicate clearly
  • creativity
  • initiative
  • good judgment
  • an outgoing personality
  • self confidence

Studying Media, Information, and Communication

If you are searching for overseas education programs in media, communication, and information you will find many alternatives to choose from. If you already have an undergraduate degree you can study a master's degree in any of the specialties available. The foundation of communications studies is a combination of behavioral science, sociology, pedagogy, and linguistics. By studying communication and information you acquire skills to critically analyze different images of reality, how media work and how identity, image and target population shape communication. Language skills are often your most important tools. Popular courses to combine with a communications major are organizational studies, economics, multimedia, languages, creative writing, and marketing.
