The person bellow is completely incorrect.
An English lit degree is generally more respected than an a media or journalism degree. A journalist came into my sixth form and informed us that employers to not like journalism as a degree as it is too specific and narrow.
Also, many famous journalists do not even have an English degree, they may have one in History for example.Source(s): I am also going to be studying English (hopefully at KCL)

No. You need a journalism/communications degree.
English Lit is if you want to teach it in high school.
