Mass Communication: Teaching and Studies at Universities.
Mass media studies as an academic field all over the world are very uneven, and in some cases an early start has not necessarily meant a fuller development later. To some extent the growth of mass media studies in universities is linked with the development of the media themselves, and especially the extent to which they serve mass audiences in a particular country. This document reports on the role of universities all over the world in teaching and research on mass media as social institutions and mass communication as a social process. It includes: (1) the professional training of journalists, broadcasters, producers, directors, and other media practitioners; (2) the teaching of mass communications or special aspects of it in university departments or specialized institutes; (3) systematic appreciation and criticism of the output of any of the mass media in university departments; and (4) research into any of the mass media or into mass communications.
