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!

Jenna’s Answer

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!
