Thank you for writing this, Professor McGuire. It is definitely
something that former J-Schoolers wonder about. But, what I can say in
defense of the degree is that having a BJ continues to carry much
value. I know for a fact it helped me get a few non-journalism jobs
becuase of the skills and training that my employers knew I had.
