Years ago, when I used to host numerous foreign journalists, I got to know an editor of a big paper who told me that whenever he needs to hire a new writer he tried not to get those who studied journalism, because they don't know anything. He prefered those who studied history and other similar subjects, because anyone can be taught to write, but he wasn't about to teach them world history, geography etc.

Guess he's a rare bird.
