Lewis Kelly, graduate student at the University of British Columbia

“One of the questions I hear most frequently from people your age is whether they have to take journalism courses to get a job. In a way, that inquiry is the beginning of any aspiring journalist’s encounter with the real world. My answers are that it depends on which school and what you mean by school.”
– Samuel G. Freedman, Letters to a Young Journalist 2006
