So my parents said that they wouldn't pay for my college education unless I planned to go into politics, law, or broadcast journalism. I want to be a writer, so I decided to "pursue" a broadcast journalism career. (In reality, if and only if I fail miserably as a writer and have to resort to stripping or playing guitar on a busy sidewalk just to get by do I intend on going to grad school for broadcast journalism.) Recently, I was talking to my parents about what I should major in. I've got my heart set on an english/creative writing double major, but my dad said that it would be IMPOSSIBLE to get into grad school for broadcast journalism with that undergrad major and that I should instead, major in (hahahahaha) COMMUNICATIONS. I don't think that my dad knows that a journalism major exists (thank god), but regardless, I am getting a little paranoid and am seriously questioning whether or not my sneaky little plan will work; is an english/C.W. double major and a good internship enough or would I have to give my all to broadcast journalism right from undergrad to even have a shot?
