SuchMore Are you interested in pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate degree in Journalism?Why not consider Journalism as your college major or career?One of the most important decisions that you will make in college is to select a major. Such decision should not be taken lightly, as it has profound implications for your career and life after college. A wrong choice today will result in added semesters and tuition tomorrow.Do you feel you are underprepared when choosing a major?Are you choosing your major based on influence and assumptions?Are you looking to others rather than draw conclusions based on your own research, interests, abilities, and self-reflection?If you answered “YES”, you are not alone.Have YOU Declared your Major?A recent research study shows that 80% of freshmen (first year college/university students) say they are undecided about their major. Most of them will change their minds multiple times even after they declare their major.Even the “decided” students often do not base their decision of major on factual research and self-reflection. The biggest mistake both the undecided and decided students make is failing to research what’s required of the major, and the career.Take a Deep BreathYou need help to make this important decision which will impact the rest of your life.The information in this book is NOT theory. These are not just a lot of nice suggestions. They are proven best practice strategies that work.Although most of the chapters in this book are peer-reviewed, they have been written in plain English in layperson’s terms to give you the best/easiest reading experience.How to Decide if Journalism is Right for YOU?So, why should you study Journalism? To help your research, we approached over 14 top professors to offer their powerful perspectives and advice. We asked them to address the most important issues for you in plain English:Why should you choose Journalism as your undergraduate major or minor?Why should you undertake a graduate/PhD degree in Journalism?What are the research areas/issues and scholarship opportunities in Journalism?What are the jobs/career options and best practice tips for the Journalism graduates?Why this Book is Different?There are many books which claim to help you choose your major. But this book is different. How?First, as opposed to “one size fits all” books, this is the first book ever written solely focusing on Sexology.Second, as opposed to perspective from a single author, this book provides you with multiple perspectives from the top professors.Third, as opposed to most other academic/complex books, this book is easy to understand and read.Finally, as opposed to crippling higher prices charged by other publishers, we have made this book available at the price of less than two lattes (or two beers if you prefer).This Book is Missing One ThingThis book is missing one thing – hype. This book contains no fluff, no complex theories, and no sugar coating. This is a serious book.
