Recent research indicates that more consumers get their news from web-based sources than printed documents. As a result, media and communication professionals who are up to speed on the latest technologies in their industry may see improved job prospects in the coming years.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, news analysts, reporters and correspondents will see the best opportunities in online newspapers and magazines over the next eight years. Consequently, individuals who wish to compete for these positions may want to consider updating their skill sets.

Fortunately, many campus-based and online colleges are launching convenient programs in an effort to help communications professionals succeed in the modern workforce.

The University of California is one of these schools, as administrators recently announced that the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism’s communication management degree is now available in a web-based format.

Ernest J. Wilson, dean of the school and chair of its communication department, said that enrollees will receive a “cutting-edge communication and journalism education, with an emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship.”
