The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So I just got back from one of my journalism classes and stop for Flint, the journalism school, and I just wanted to tell you guys a little bit about what journalism class is like our here, it k u the way journalism works here. You can choose from two different branches of journalism, their strategic communications, and there's news and information. So what I want to do with that is broadcast reporting or work in the entertainment industry. You could also do writing and editing, and strategic communications is typically advertising and public relations work. You don't really have to decide until your sophomore year, usually, and even after that, you can change if you want Teo. Your freshman year, all journalism students take the same classes. So even if you're unsure as to which bring it, she want to go. You can kind of give it a year and just see what the journalism program is like and see where your interests are. Then you can begin to branch off and start specialising in different things. One thing that I really love about the journalism school is that you actually don't have to just pick one branch. You can do both, and basically double major instructs you to strategic communications and news and information. So if you have interests in both than you can pursue both and to see where that takes you, most of the journalism classes as you get more advanced and more into like your speciality gets smaller. Like the class I just got back from it was journalism for eighty eight, which is advanced media, and we have about ten people in there, so that's actually pretty small for a journalism class. Then I have a lecture on Mondays and Wednesdays, and there's about thirty of us in there. Journalism wanna one, which all journalism students have to start off by taking. There was about five hundred of us in there, so typically it starts off pretty big. Then it's like I said, as you get into your specialty, Um, it gets a lot smaller. My experience with the journalism school at Kew has been great. I'm a part of the journalism leadership team here in K you. So I'm pretty involved, and I actually produced a couple shows here on campus. We have two media studios here, so you can get a lot of broadcast experience, and then we also have, um and ad agency in the journalism school. If you're into advertising, and then we also have a newspaper here. So if you're in should in writing or taking photos or doing anything in that sorts, you can do that as well. One thing that stood out to me when I was choosing between journalism schools, a different universities is that at K you you can start all of these things when you're a freshman. All these extracurriculars you wouldn't do the newspaper if you want to do broadcast any of the things you can start as a freshman where I noticed that other universities you to wait until you were an upperclassman, and so I thought it was really pulled. You can just start even just start diving into what you're passionate about, and then just kind of find your way through it. So maybe if you try broadcast freshman hearing decide, you don't like it then sophomore year. You can try something else, so that way you can try out lots of different things and see where your talents and passions like.
