Dr. Bashir Memon

Abstract


This article presents original research findings about the education of journalists in Sindh province Pakistan and mentions how education is one of the significant variables influencing the journalists‘ conditions and their profession. Citing different scholars and researchers the article emphasizes upon a higher level of education for journalists as they may not be manipulated professionally and exploited financially. Moreover the empirical data gathered by a surveying 576 journalists show that highly/university educated journalists emerge with different professional patterns; like on average working more in newsrooms than as news reporters, hired by broadcast and wire-service media organizations than newspapers or being more paid compared with those journalists who were less educated. In this way, this is a reminder that education of journalists is a significant key to improve the conditions of journalists and quality of journalism particularly in third world or developing countries.
