I have not really checked out the entire forum just yet. For all that I know, there may very well already be multiple threads on this topic. However, it seems to me that a majority of conversation on this forum goes on in relation to books, poetry, etc., and leaves out journalism. I am wondering as to whether any members of this forum are journalists, and if so, if you could share some of those ways that we should make it in the industry. I'm a huge fan of Robert Fisk, and aspire one day to do similar work as he- God Willing. How would one go about becoming an internationally recognized journalist? I am nearly entering college, and am debating whether I should major in Political Science, and then get my masters in Journalism, or just stick to Journalism for both my major and masters. Then of course there is also the option of doing it the opposite way, which would be to major in journalism and get my masters in Political Science. Also, is it possible to get a job working for a particular news agency as an investigative journalist, and after attaining some sort of credibility, move on to freelance journalism? How difficult is it to actually find a job as an investigative journalist overseas? And how likely is it, after that experience working with a specific agency, to move into freelance journalism? Thanks in advance!
