Question by desifrom305: Advertising or Journalism?
I am currently an advertising major, though strongly considering switching to journalism. I am pursuing my bachelor’s right now and I want to get my master’s in film. Eventually I want to work in the entertainment industry, specifically in film/tv production. I do not enjoy advertising as I thought I would. I don’t enjoy graphic design or marketing/advertising techniques. I don’t enjoy analyzing images/ads and discussing them.
However, I love writing and am enjoying my writing courses at college. I am also interning as a journalist as a magazine and I’m loving it. So these reasons make me want to switch to journalism. But people tell me advertising is more practical, and journalism is dying so I’m not sure. I’d rather do what I love which is journalism, but I hope that it’s something practical and not just a waste of time.
What should I do?
