Careers in media and communications are numerous and diverse, and many offer humanities and social sciences PhDs and MAs excellent opportunities to put their research and communication skills and training to work. Career paths can lead to a job as researcher in a communications think tank, a managing editor in the communications department of a museum of art, a writer and producer for a television show or broadcast journalism. But the very diversity of possible paths, and the particular qualifications and requirements specific to different fields of employment, can make finding an opening into a career in media and communications a challenge. Attend this panel to get a sense of the lay of the land, and start to get your bearings.
