Professional development

Evaluations conducted among the three dominant BA courses shows that most (70-80 percent) of the students work as journalists one year after completing their education. Permanent employment is, however, uncommon compared to other sectors in society. A growing share of journalists works as freelancers, or combine journalism with other jobs. Change of profession has also become more common, especially among women. Over the last 5-10 years, significant cutbacks have occurred in editorial offices, which has directly affected the job market for new journalists.
