Training and Employment of Ph.D.s in Mass Communication. Journalism Monographs No. 42.
Chaffee, Steven H.; Clarke, Peter
This paper reports on two census surveys, one focusing on Ph.D. supply patterns of the past five years and the other probing the anticipated demand for new faculty in the next five years. Information on Ph.D. supply patterns was obtained by mailing questionnaires to administrators or faculty members responsible for the mass communications programs at 17 major universities. Information on the anticipated demand for Ph.D.s was obtained through a one-page questionnaire sent to each of the 136 department heads, chairmen, and directors listed on the Association for Education in Journalism Executive Secretary's mailing list. The results of the surveys are discussed and so are the factors that might influence a change in either the supply or the demand curve for future Ph.D.s. (RB)
