How many times do we, as journalism students, hear “You’re majoring in journalism? Isn’t that a dying career? Why not major in something current and useful like finance?”
Gag. Journalism is not dying and I make sure to tell all of these pessimists, who are way too concerned with my life choices by the way, exactly why. Like everything in this crazy 21st century world we stepped into, journalism is just adapting to the times. Does that mean soon, to the environmentalists’ content, we will be killing less trees by not printing physical newspapers? Yes. Does that mean journalism dies in place of these trees? No.
