    Yes, you can join bachelor degree courses in journalism, immediately after 12th. After completing courses like B.A in Journalism, B.Sc in Mass Communication, etc you can apply for the post of journalist. At the initial phase, candidates are appointed to entry level positions. By gaining experience, they can move to the role of a professional journalist. Post Graduation in the related area will help to improve your career prospects. M.A. (Broadcast Journalism) or M.A in (Convergent Journalism) can be selected according to the interest. M.A. (Mass Communication & Journalism) and M.A. (Media and Communication) are other suitable courses.

    STEPS:
    1. Love the craft of writing.
    2. Learn to spell and have good grammatical skills.
    3. Practice writing daily.
    4. In high school take college prep courses.
    5. Apply to a college or university and study journalism, communications or English.
    6. Work on the high school and college newspapers.
    7. Take part in newspaper internships. Most newspapers offer internships to journalism students. Take advantage of this opportunity.
    8. Work as a freelance reporter. Most newspapers are looking for freelance reporters to cover stories their full-time staff may not have time to cover.

    WARNINGS:
    Jobs in journalism tend to be hard to get. Be prepared for a lot of rejection.
    Think about minoring in something that would help find work, if the reporting career takes awhile to develop.
