What is your Perfect Major?
created with QuizFarm.com
Not exactly what turned out to be my major 30 years ago (first sociology, then development economics) and I think I would have sucked at journalism. I'm amazed I scored so low for Art, considering my BA Sociology thesis was about punk rock. But maybe the test reflects my current priorities decades after what I aspired to as a would-be student.
I also think that journalism shouldn't be taught as a major, only as a minor degree because journalists' first duty should be to master their subject and then hone their writing craft, not the other way round as is usually the case. Hence the shoddy journalism in much of the media. Blogging included.
