To be honest, if I was an employer in the media industry, I'd probably rather employ to someone who's done an English degree or a History degree, as opposed to someone who has done Media Studies, ironically enough. I presume, contrary to how I believe it should be, that this media degree you're taking is the best way to get in to that job market?
Why is that?
And I'm not sure it's the best way, but it's certainly not a bad way either. I'm building up a portfolio with things and the University can help students on the course get vital work experience. But still, I'm not getting ahead of myself here, and I realize that even with this degree I'll have to work my way up.
