What majors do you recommend in order to be an ethnomusicologist?
I am currently enrolled in a World Musics class at my university, and I find the field of ethnomusicology fascinating. However, I'm curious what majors lead to this. There's music, obviously, but this doesn't prepare one for understanding other cultures. It seems that sociology would be equally helpful because you don't necessarily have to be a musician to study how music reflects/influences culture. There's also the option to get a degree in [Country/Region] Studies, but I don't know if that's too specific for this purpose. Can anyone weigh in on this? Thanks so much! #college-major #music #world-cultures #ethnomusicology #musicology #world-music
how can I become an international journalist like for BBC World News or something similar?
I am writer and I am passionate about world issues. I plan to double major in journalism and audio/recording/studio engineering. Journalism is a career I am deeply considering alongside recording engineering. However, I like discussing world issues, and I like to explore the context of situations and BBC has always intrigued me touching on a variety of topics, and exploiting the truth about particular scenarios. #journalism #international #foreign-affairs #news-writing #world-cultures
