Title Work Expectations of Graduates in Communication. Study-case of Journalism Students at University of Zaragoza Summary Using a quantitative methodology, this article tells about three fundamental aspects of university studies in the field of Communication. With a sample corresponding to the pupils of last year of the degree in Journalism of the University of Zaragoza (course 2012-2013), it establishes conclusions concerning the expectations of these graduates, their higher education and the current and upcoming labor market. This article concludes that these students chose the studies because they were thinking that “as journalists they could contribute to a better world”. They considered that they might be employed at a multimedia environment and that they must continue to get updated instruction after graduating. Therefore, they agree that it will not be easy to become Journalism professional practitioners. Keywords Communication Sciences; work expectations; Journalism; EHEA; University of Zaragoza.
