In-state tuition for broadcast journalism at private institutions is, on average, 3.9 times more pricey than their public rivals.

With just 68 colleges offering this degree there could be limited options as to the institutions you can choose from. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other broadcast journalism undergrads, consider looking at schools in New York which have the most undergrads admitted to broadcast journalism annually. less precisely, the top region to study broadcast journalism is in the Southeast region with Northern Kentucky University, Western Kentucky University, and University of South Carolina-Columbia best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to study broadcast journalism is the Atlantic Coast Conference with University of Miami representing the conference. That being said, our selection for the best college for broadcast journalism is University of Southern California. You may also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

Our choice for the school representing the best value for broadcast journalism: University of Southern California. Here you can see our comprehensive list about the schools we believe to be the best value in general. Bear in mind, this idea is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when it comes to in-state tuition, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for broadcast journalism students vary a lot, but within two-years of leaving college students will regularly earn in the neighborhood of $41,100. There can be much variation in earnings potential; highest paid earners can bring in up to $80,200.
