Graduate school

    Sorry if I am posting in the wrong forum, but I was just wondering how much of a benefit graduate school can be for journalism majors. I'm currently working at a small town daily as the sports editor, but I feel as if I'm stuck in the mud in terms of getting better in venues such as video. Would going to school to attain a Master's degree help in not only improving but also landing a job at a bigger publication? Thanks, and sorry if this is posted in the wrong area.

    We have a thread under Journalism Topics. The general consensus is that it's a waste of time. And by general consensus, I mean not a single person has felt otherwise.

    I have thought about this as well, but lean toward going to a community college to learn very specific skills, such as web design. Most university master's programs seem more geared to academic careers than skill development.
