    History major wants to be a journalist but doesn't know where to begin. What do I do?

    I am about to graduate from Rutgers University with a bachelors degree in history. I would love to become a journalist, but I haven't take courses that would prepare me for that career, so I am afraid no media outlet would hire me. What should I do?

    What I would recommend is to do some freelance work, start a blog, and see what the type of skills those companies want from a journalist.  A lot of it can be self-taught and make sure you have samples of your writing.
