Can Journalism really be a "lead-way" major into publishing?
My counselor knows that I wanted to be a book editor as my final career. However instead of majoring in English, she told me to major in Journalism because English is more for Education? I just wanted to know if I should put English or Journalism or if it matters.
The short answer is yes, it can be. However, you need to make sure you focus all of your energy and experience on a route that leads directly into publishing. A major in journalism is certainly helpful but you can also major in communications, or pretty much anything. Publishing is more about your internships and experience. You also need to tier writing skills.
