A Profile of the Present Status of Television Production Curriculum in American Colleges and Universities.
Metallinos, Nikos
This study surveyed the specific assignments in the television production courses at 175 United States colleges and universities. The following conclusions were drawn from the analyses of the data collected: Television production courses involve the students with television production formats identical to those found in the broadcast industry. Expensive and elaborate television productions are not encouraged, due to limited money, personnel, and facilities. Courses dealing with video experimentation in both narrative and electronic forms are less popular and have a very low priority in television production course curricula. Advanced television production courses (and, therefore, advanced television production projects) are extremely scarce, almost nonexistent in the broadcast curricula. The study concludes that the television production curriculum in colleges and universities in the United States is insufficient and unrealistic in view of the technological advancements and the educational and sociological needs of the times. Appendixes contain copies of the survey instrument and cover letter. (Author/RL)
