May 18th 2005 Earn a Master’s Degree?

Sometimes at work I get tired of sitting around, and use my thirst as a reason to get up and get a drink. This afternoon, I decided I need two minutes away from my workstation, so I strode over to Dana Engineering and got a drink of disgusting, overly-chlorinated water at the water fountain. On the way back, I saw a poster from NYU that said something like “Earn a Master’s of Science degree in Public Relations and Communications”.

It occurred to me that a much better pitch would be “Be Given a Master’s of Science Degree in Public Relations and Communications”.
