Broadcast Journalism Education and the Capstone Experience
Tanner, Andrea; Forde, Kathy Roberts; Besley, John C.; Weir, Tom
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v67 n3 p219-233 Sep 2012
This study assesses the current state of the television news capstone experience in accredited journalism and mass communication programs in the United States. Specifically, the authors employed a mixed-methods approach, interviewing 20 television news capstone instructors and conducting an analysis of broadcast journalism curriculum information obtained from 113 schools. More than 90 percent of accredited schools offer a television news capstone, and faculty had similar insights about television news instruction and how best to teach the television news capstone course. (Contains 34 notes.)
