A New Look at the Broadcast Curricula.
Hunter, Charles F.
The author reviews the development of broadcast education and its current status, and then discusses some of the dissatisfactions that educators, broadcasters, and students have with the present broadcast curricula. He feels that communications departments should offer programs that serve all college students, not merely those who are interested in broadcasting as a career. The goals he sets forth are: (1) an initial course in integrated media for every student; (2) a course, also for every student, in communications history and theory; (3) courses to provide comparative understanding, for the broadcasting major, of the mass communications media and the societies they serve; (4) professional study in oral and written aspects of broadcast communication; and (5) advanced courses for specialization in writing, programming, management, or production. He emphasizes the importance of internship programs in providing experience beyond the classroom or laboratory. He concludes with a statement of the characteristics and attitudes that a graduate of a future broadcast education program should possess. (Author/RN)
