how can I become an international journalist like for BBC World News or something similar?
I am writer and I am passionate about world issues. I plan to double major in journalism and audio/recording/studio engineering. Journalism is a career I am deeply considering alongside recording engineering. However, I like discussing world issues, and I like to explore the context of situations and BBC has always intrigued me touching on a variety of topics, and exploiting the truth about particular scenarios. #journalism #international #foreign-affairs #news-writing #world-cultures
I think the best way to break into the industry would be through internship opportunities. Unfortunately, many popular/large newspapers or news outlets only have unpaid internships, which might make this difficult, as well as strict criteria for being accepted to work at those places. It would be great for you to start researching these now, even call up local news stations and see what it takes to be an intern there. Write letters or emails of inquiries to the big ones as well, just so you know what to expect (GPA needed, any volunteer opportunities that would better your chances, etc).
Even look into the local NPR radio station, which might be a good way for you to get into international journalism, most major cities have a local NPR division that might be able to help you. I think this is the site for the Brooklyn area NPR station: https://www.wnyc.org/
