While golfing the other day, I met a college student who told me he recently decided to major in journalism. He had just finished a couple of years of general education classes at a local Junior College and was heading up to a major Illinois school to continue his studies.
I didn't know what to say.
If there were any major I would try to veer my children away from right now, it would be journalism, simply for marketability sake. I'm not exactly sure what the future holds for journalism, but I just don't think there's going to be much money in it.
I remember when I started college in 2000, my friends went into a wide field of studies, from psychology and medicine to business, communications and journalism. All of them seemed like decent decisions.
What fields today do you think would be smart for newly entered collegiates to enter? And which would you plead them to stay away from?
