Companies Hiring M.A. Graduates


“You’ll be jobless after doing your M.A.”. That’s what you have been hearing all your life, right? “You will have to prepare for government jobs,” and “No companies will hire you”. This is what most of the students, as well as parents, think. It is true to some extent, but one specialization under the M.A. degree almost guarantees you a job. M.A. in journalism/mass communication is the most rewarding M.A. degree, proven statistically.
