Over at the New York Times About.com network, I’ve been discussing potential college majors with my audience–would-be freelance writers. Yes, I majored in English, and yes, I enjoyed the heck out of it. However, I thought I was going to teach, and, in all honesty, had I known this (freelance writing/copy writing) is the career that I would eventually fall in love with, I probably would have selected Journalism.
If you’re a writer, weigh in with your opinion on the “appropriate” major. If you’re a client, come on by and tell us what majors have piqued your interest in hiring writers, copywriters and ghostwriters.
