What do you do with a degree in Popular Culture?

23 07 2009

Lately, I have been feeling very inspired by Sara and her posts about “What do you do with a BA in English.” (Un)fortunately, we think the same. Ever since first year university, people always ask me what the heck popular culture is and why I  would be studying it. It’s hard trying to explain pop culture to baby boomers because they think the concept is really silly and quickly change the topic from film and television, to why I’m not married. Everyone over the age of 40 is shocked, and give the “Ohhh…” response. To them, it’s unimportant, but to me, there is nothing more important.

I decided to study Popular Culture in university because that’s what I was most passionate about, so it only made sense to me that I would want to spend four years of my life deeply immersed in something that surrounds everyone anyway.

So, without further ado, what do you do with a degree in Popular Culture?

Have an internal (and heated debate)  about which celebrity “team” you’re on. So far, I’m team Aniston, team Black Eyed Peas,  and after a great deal of thought, team Kate (from Jon and Kate + 8.)

You job hunt for the perfect career that lets you talk about pop culture on a daily basis.

The opportunities are endless. Journalist, blogger, publicist, PR, etc.
