Question by Sapphire R: What college courses would be best to take if I want to be a fashion magazine editor or writer?
It’s my senior year in high school and I’m ready to begin looking into colleges but I’m not sure where to start. I’ve done alot of research about what courses I need and what’s come up the most is fashion merchandising, fashion marketing, journalism, and grapic design. Which one of these degrees would help me the most in landing a job with a magazine?

    Major in journalism, minor in fashion marketing. This is a very competitive field. Try to go to college in New York City and try to meet as many magazine writers and editors as you can, whether or not they are involved in fashion. Getting a job in this field is mostly a matter of “whom you know”, not “what you know.”

    yup, i agree with ownpool. its the summer, so try looking for an internship in journalism of any kind. local newspaper is good too, just to open your mind to the world of editing. Try to get into a good university/college in NYC. I heard NYU’s journalism department is pretty great. While your time in NYC, intern for fashion magazines, as most of their headquarters are right there.
