- What can I do with a degree in journalism or communication?

The short answer – almost anything. NU-Q graduates aren’t locked into any one career and work as media executives, reporters, producers, editors, public relations executives, policy makers, television writers, movie directors, photographers, among many other professions.
As the journalism and media fields continue their rapid growth in the Gulf region, our graduates will have outstanding opportunities to help shape entire industries using the skills they have learned at NU-Q – whether they report and tell stories, run a business, or write and direct films.
NU-Q has developed strong relationships with Qatar Foundation and its subsidiaries which have hundreds of possibilities for marketing, communications, public affairs and advocacy positions. NU-Q has also established links with Al-Jazeera, Doha Tribeca Film Festival, ExxonMobil, and other entities including major publications and radio and TV broadcast networks around the world.
