Will it be hard for me to pursue a postgraduate degree which is not related to my major in undergraduate?

Hello! I would like to try out something new when I study for my postgraduate degree. Will it be hard for me to get admitted if I choose to study on a subject which is not related to my current major like Journalism or creative media? If I want to get admitted, is it better for me to prepare things like portfolio?

(P.S. I am planning to minor in Journalism!)

Thanks!! #journalism

If you don't have a degree in a particular field, try to volunteer with an organization in that field. You'll learn quite a bit and can often build up a portfolio.

I did an Master's on an area that wasn't related to my Bachelor's degree. It was hard, but not impossible. Be aware that you'll probably have to put in extra effort because you're entering a new area. Try to learn as much as you can about the new field and, like others have said, try to build a portfolio too (it won't hurt and you'll get experience that way).

It depends on the post graduate degree. In the case of journalism or creative media, I believe your undergraduate degree will not matter. But you may be asked to provide samples of your writing or other work.
