Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Journalism roles are very sought after, and competition fierce. It's not impossible to get into roles with a first degree – quite a few do - but they can often be insecure or on a freelance basis, and a lot of jobs in journalism go to postgraduates. Unpaid work is not the norm for new journalists, but it’s rather more common than for other roles. The skills you can gain from a journalism degree can be useful in a range of industries, and so grads from these courses can be found in a wide range of jobs. London tends to dominate the jobs market for journalism graduates, but 2012 graduates found opportunities elsewhere, particularly in the South East and North West.
