Sara’s Answer

Early in my career, i took another approach to media involvement. I was a media planner and buyer which is taking a client's budget and planning where it makes the most sense for their advertising message to live to deliver to their target and meet their goals. This includes buying media space across different vehicles including broadcast. I'm not sure if this is an approach you're interested in but there are many ways to achieve this career. The University of Texas has a specific advertising and media program, but other colleges typically offer advertising specific classes in their marketing programs. I would recommend a decent amount of math classes as the position is focused around financial planning.

Hi, Tyler:

How are you? The possibilities are endless for you, if you want to work in media. If you're interested in being a reporter, go for a broadcast journalism degree. To be a producer, director, sound engineer, photographer, etc, you can go for a Television/Radio/Film degree.

You can also major in photography, public relations, and many others. Think of what you would like to DO first, then find the major & college to get you there.

Best of luck!
