Changing Education for Journalism.
Norton, Michael Merrill
To obtain quantitative measures of the extent, popularity, or desirability of innovations and changes in education for the professions, a questionnaire asking the current proportion, recent significant increase or decrease, and desirability of future increase or decrease about each of fifty trends in professional education was sent to the journalism head at every institution in the country which offers a bachelor's degree in journalism. The most frequently reported trends dealt with increases in the proportion of students majoring in another field and enrolled in a journalism course, participating in administration, and from ethnic minority groups, and increases in the proportion of courses providing off-campus experience and in which audiovisual equipment is used frequently. Larger schools and departments whose heads had less professional experience tended to be more innovative. Many schools or departments believed they should revise their programs or emphases, particularly in the areas of minority students and faculty, mathematics and statistics requirements, paraprofessional training, programed instruction, computer use, interdisciplinary courses, independent study, use of television, team teaching, and classroom equipment.
