Herling, Michele, Ed.
This canvas of the field contains information compiled on 613 universities, colleges, and two-year coleges in the United States--186 more schools than were listed in the 1971 survey. Of these 613 schools, 194 offer degrees in film and/or television, majors with degrees in a related field, and/or a strong emphasis on film and television with a degree and major in a related field. A total of 22,466 students are presently pursuing degrees in film, television, or related areas. Film and television production courses are taught more than courses in history and criticism of those media. Media training for teachers is offered at 167 colleges. The listing for each school contains: name of department offering courses, address, name of person to contact, degree offered, number of major students, number of available scholarships, a statement of any distinctive programs, names of faculty, summary of the program, titles of courses offered, and available equipment. For schools which offer only a few courses, only parts of this information (usually including names of courses) are listed. (JK)
