If you look industry wide the print industry has really taken a hit to other forms of electronic communications. Photographers have become a dying breed. Those working at papers have had to become multi media experts. Editing video for an increasingly web based platform. To cut corners they are handling reporters iPhones. So not saying to study photography, I would major in video, web design, graphic arts on top of journalism and keep photography as a minor. As chances are you will end up writing. The photography gigs are put there but its a very competitive market, so you better develop your eye to be really good. A lot of photographers end up being freelance.
Many photographers do not have degrees. Some intern and assist other photographers. Develop a portfolio, freelance and develop their own agency clients
