Publication Management: Journalism Education's Stepchild?
Eberhard, Wallace B.
This study was undertaken to get an overview of the status of publication management courses and programs in journalism education. A one-page questionnaire containing eight questions was mailed to the deans, directors, and department heads and chairpersons of all U.S. journalism departments and schools listed in the January 1974 issue of "Journalism Educator." The survey results showed that management-type courses are taught at slightly less than half the journalism schools and departments, and about seven percent of those schools have a structured major or sequence for those who anticipate a career in print media management; most journalism educators personally feel there is a need for these kinds of courses in the journalism curriculum; and journalism schools and department are hard pressed these days to keep up with demands to offer sufficient sections of basic offerings.
