People are laughing at me for taking journalism, you can't learn that they say....who says anything about learning.....if the people that do our lectures and read our reports are ex-journalists, part time journalists, they know people, someone in your class may be the next Kate Ady....besides gives you time to do some freelancing and I have my foot in the door anyway.
Work experience at news international, work experience this summer at BBC News I know Jon Simpson, Matthew Amaralliwala etc etc etc. It's just a platform really to move to London and learn some stuff about the law etc. I am taking the course for serious reasons though as well

That seems to be the general argument against most of the "fashionable" courses that give you limited options once you have completed them.

tequila studies, and surf studies are two courses i class as joke courses.
hey apparently surf studies are quite serious..... they spend alot of time in the classroom learning about coastal features, the properties of waves/quality of material for surfboards etc, and only spend one session per week actually surfing.....

And what exactly are you supposed to do when you graduate assuming that you dont go and work for some surfing company?

ummm i was watching something on tv where someone was defending surf studies... i think there are quite alot of things surf related... you could go for surfboard manufacturing, fitness instructor, geographer (specialising on coastlines), coast guard, surf competition adjudicators/organisers, brochure writers/reviewers, etc... besides being a surfer...

So basically pretty much nothing that you couldnt do without the degree or with any half decent degree.

umm i think you do need some knowledge of surfboards and their properties if you want to go into manufacturing..... or even into instructing... it can be quite a specialised job - it will contain alot of subjects all rolled into one. and don't tell me you can become a fitness instructor without learning about the human body, nutrition and all that stuff first...
