So You’re a Journalism Major, Huh?

With newspapers laying off employees left and right, what kind of future do you have? For that matter, why do colleges even bother maintaining journalism schools?

To be sure, Journalism School teaches some general skills.  It used to be like an English degree with the possibility of employment.  Now both majors provide a four-year path to a career at Starbucks.

We are witnessing a major paradigm shift in how the public seeks information, and the daily paper is going the way of the buggy whip.
