I'm currently in my third year on a media theory/journalism practical course. It's not NCTJ accredited however, though I know a lot about journalism and have had lots of work published, etc.
I *think* I want to do a post graduate degree? My course doesn't teach shorthand, which really irks me as I'm scared I won't get a job without it. I also don't know a lot about video and audio, editing etc. I really only know a little media law, writing skills and media theory.
Basically, is it worth me pursuing what I want to do above? Has anyone done or doing a Journalism MA and finds it valuable. I definitely want to go to a different university, the MA's at my uni are data based or global media based.
Also, to any MA: What's the workload? Third year is rather hard (assignments, exams, 300 hour production project and 10k word dissertation)... should I expect more? The same? Less?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
