You will use what you learn in journalism classes your whole life.
You will use the logic and clear thinking skills in your other classes, in your career, relationships and life. These skills can help you earn the ‘A’ you want in history or literature or even science, a field where young people often incorrectly believe they will not need clear writing skills.
You will use your clear writing skills on college papers, in graduate work, on job application letters, legal briefs, medical reports, interoffice memos, professional letter writing and love letter writing.
These skills help prepare you for a career in journalism, if that’s what you’re after. But they are excellent early preparation for careers in law, medicine, computer technology, teaching, the information or service industry, or any other field that requires clear thinking and clear expression.
