The Value of a Media Master's Degree

Industry and academic discourses indicate that in order to get a job in the media, relevant experience is extremely important.

Therefore, for people like me who want to build a career in this sector, acquiring a masters degree is not an immediate priority. Developing your academic knowledge of the media does not seem as important as having practical experience.
