What are the best A levels for a degree in journalism? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Just out of interest. Thanks


    I think English Literature and/or English Language A levels would be extremely useful to pursue a degree in Journalism as it works on your writing skills, your expression, and how you present your ideas and opinions. I know that when I was researching different courses, Journalism had required an English A level to apply.

    As for other A levels, I think Geography would be a nice one as you can learn a lot more about the world, tourism, business, urbanisation, natural disasters and so on, but I think the choice is really yours to make. Journalists are able to report and write about different aspects, so I think a variety of subjects would be a nice combination as it is important to have knowledge among a variety of areas whether it be media, businesses, climate, etc.

    I hope that helps a little bit. Take care
