These courses are very useful in terms of general culture and allow a better understanding of many subjects when you are a journalist.

The Magistère of course gave me my first professional experience through internships and Synergie missions, which quickly confirmed my desire to become a journalist, especially my first internship at the newspaper La Provence, which allowed me to practice the profession in the field. The number of internships and assignments allows us to have different experiences and therefore to realize what we like the most, in order to make the best choices later on. Today, after two years of work experience at France Télévisions, I have been a freelance journalist for the Franceinfo channel for a year and a half.

This is a real added value for students who are thus confronted with the realities and constraints of the working world. These missions have taught me how to manage my stress, with public speaking and regular exchanges with professionals, senior civil servants... and event organisation. With other Magisterial students, I was able to organize conferences in the Faculty of Law, where I had to present the speakers. Today, as a Media Officer for the Havas advertising group, I am no longer intimidated by public speaking and everything I have learned is a real strength, especially during presentations to clients.

Employers and clients alike like to see this "double hat": you have to be very versatile, understand the expectations and needs of journalists, but you also have to know how to write articles and communication materials, as well as being strategic, organized and able to handle pressure.
