Graphics Education Survey. Part II.
Ernst, Sandra B.
After a 1977 survey reflected the importance of graphics education for news students, a study was developed to investigate the state of graphics education in the whole field of journalism. A questionnaire was sent to professors and administrators in four print-oriented professional fields of education: magazine, advertising, public relations, and photojournalism. Respondents were asked to rate a list of 16 items taught in graphics courses on two dimensions: the importance of the items to students in a particular professional area and the preparation on that item provided for students by the respondent's program. The survey separated the educational experience into two basic types of knowledge (cognitive and skills) and two different graphics areas (design and production). (A survey analysis and tables indicating a mean rating, skill importance, and the preparation offered in educational programs are included for news and the four professional fields in the study; a separate figure conveys the combined responses of administrators and graphics instructors for all of the areas and dimensions of the study.)
