Would a science and engineering based college be right for me if I want to go into sports broadcasting?
I've played at least three sports year round my entire life, and so I know I want a career in the sports and entertainment area. But my dream school isn't one known for this major. Do I need to just go away from my life long dream of going to my perfect school? Should I go a school with the best program for me even if that means going to a college I'm not passionate about? #college #college-major #entertainment #sports-journalism #schools-of-the-future
Well, if you have the time and the money to spend on an extended education, like myself; going for double majors, say, in science and/or engineering and adjunct to another major in communications and/or broadcasting ... it is good to earn these degrees now, when you are young; because later, it will much more difficult to return to higher education and achieve the successes that one has when young!
Good luck and that ball is out of here! Bye, bye, English L.
Ultimately, it depends on what you want to go into. For instance, I am working on the business side of the industry so a degree in psychology and communications from a liberal arts university was perfectly sufficient. However, if you want to work in production you may need a school that allows you to gain the experience of creating highlights, doing camera work, etc. Evaluate what you want to do and then make a decision. Even if the school does not necessarily have the major you want, often times you can work with faculty to design your own major, do independent studies with local businesses to gain experience, or even take online classes in addition to your normal classes. There is always a way to achieve what you want out of life - just ask questions and find out the best way for you to get both the school and the career you want!
