We’re asked many times what kind of jobs (and in some cases, internships) our students find once they’ve graduated. As you’ll see from the following list, we have graduates working in journalism and in other careers both in the U.S. and around the world. As Philip Merrill College of Journalism Dean Lucy Dalglish reminds us, journalism is an excellent major for many jobs and the positions our students find reflect that fact.
The list below reflects jobs found by our students who graduated in 2016 and 2015 as found on LinkedIn:
