A Descriptive Study of College and University Teachers of Journalism in the United States. AASDJ Studies on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, No. 2.
Danielson, Wayne A.; Mgbemena, Nwabu
This descriptive study of college-level journalism teachers in the United States shows that the teachers are primarily male, young to middle aged, and distributed fairly evenly within the various academic ranks. There is a heavy midwestern emphasis in their current employment and in their academic training. The doctorate is now the modal degree in the field, although emphasis continues to be placed on the professional experience of the teacher, with newspaper experience the norm. Teaching specialties tend to follow professional lines, but there is an apparent interest in such teaching specialties as mass communication and society, theory and methodology, and history. (Author)
