FLORIDA JUNIOR COLLEGE JOURNALISM CURRICULA, A REPORT.
REID, RONALD JAMES
A 1968 SURVEY OF FLORIDA JUNIOR COLLEGE JOURNALISM PROGRAMS GATHERED INFORMATION ABOUT THE NATURE OF COURSES OFFERED AND THE CREDIT GRANTED FOR SUCH COURSES. OF THE 26 JUNIOR COLLEGES IN THE STATE, 23 OFFERED JOURNALISM INSTRUCTION, WITH 14 PRESENTING A BASIC COURSE SIMILAR TO THAT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA. ALTHOUGH THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA ACCEPTED ONLY SIX UNITS FOR TRANSFER CREDIT IN THE PREPROFESSIONAL JOURNALISM SEQUENCE, SIX COLLEGES OFFERED 10 OR MORE CREDIT HOURS, AND ONE MADE AVAILABLE 26 CREDIT HOURS. SUCH VARIATION OCCURRED PRIMARILY IN THE PUBLICATIONS PROGRAMS OF THE COLLEGES. RECOMMENDATIONS DERIVED FROM THE FINDINGS INCLUDED (1) DEVELOPMENT OF MINIMUM GUIDELINES FOR THE BASIC COURSE, (2) ESTABLISHMENT OF A PERMANENT INTERINSTITUTIONAL CURRICULUM COMMITTEE TO WORK WITH PUBLICATIONS ADVISORS, AND (3) INCREASED ARTICULATION AMONG THE JUNIOR COLLEGES AND BETWEEN THE JUNIOR COLLEGES AND THE UNIVERSITY.(WO)
