Question by Jamie: RIP ATWT (1956-2010): What major is recommended for someone considering a career as a screenwriter?
I have a large mindset on going to med school, as medicine and health fascinate me. However, I have also began considering a career as a screenwriter (probably for Soaps) or broadcast journalist. I know; they are at completely different ends of the spectrum. But- I am a little confused as to what education is recommended for screenwriters and if there are a lot of people heading into that area of creative writing. Thanks!

If the school itself does not have screenwriting then you would mostly likely be better off doing English with maybe a creative writing concentration, most schools have that but you definetely need to take English as a major with maybe a minor in theatre.
