As this course focuses on exploring the diversity of the journalistic environment, the careers opportunities it may lead to are broad and far-reaching. The significant growth in the area of media communications in general, means that employment prospects are now promising in what was previously considered a 'closed shop'. On successful completion of this course students may pursue a career in writing for newspapers, periodicals, journals or magazines, or as part of a company as its Press/ Information Officer. The proliferation of local and national radio in Ireland means that there are  openings in this area for suitably qualified personnel either within radio presenting or research.
