There are journalism programs in college, which give you some training and credentials, but they are not required,. You can also be a journalist if you do the things journalists do- write well, make deadlines, ask good questions, listen closely, report the facts. Some publications hire part-time or contract positions (sometimes called stringers). The best thing to do is to practice writing a lot, take some journalism classes to hone your skills (and some non-journalism classes to see what else is out there), then actually investigate and write the piece, and hopefully publish it!

Hello Kruthi! I am a journalism student and there is quite a list of course you must take. Depending on which college you attend, meet with an advisor. There are a number of wonderful courses out there for you!
