Celebrities That Majored in Journalism or Communication8:30 AM
Since we are both in the communications field of study, I'm majoring in Broadcast Journalism and Tara is majoring in Communication, I sometimes wonder which celebrities started off as journalists. Believe it or not, many actors went to school and majored in journalism or communications. Although they're not working as news anchor, take a look at some actors who had a different passion before hitting the big screen.
Denzel Washington- Major: Journalism and Drama
It's hard to believe this two time Oscar winner majored in Journalism. After graduating from Fordham University, Washington earned a Bachelor's degree in both Drama and Journalism. I'm guessing theater was always in his heart. After much debate, Washington decided to take the theater route and attended American Conservatory Theater for his graduate.
Kimberly Elise- Major: Mass Communication
The Hit the Floor actress always had a passion for acting, even studying acting and film while attending University of Minnesota. She would later earn a Bachelor's degree in Mass Communication.
Brad Pitt- Major: Journalism with a focus in Advertising
Regina Hall- : Major: Journalism
James Marsden- Major: Broadcast Journalism
For those of you that are entering college and confused about picking a major, don't worry because you will find your passion. For those of you that are similar to me and second guessing your major, don't stress. Ask yourself why you've picked the major in the first place. The one lesson that can be learned from the above actors is, it doesn't matter where you start, it's where you'll end up. You may graduate a Journalist, but later become a Professor or an actor. Whatever your dream is, don't give up.
