The Emergence of Mass Communication Curricula in Illinois Community and Junior Colleges.
Parcells, Frank E., III
A survey was conducted of the 56 public and private two-year colleges in Illinois to determine the nature of their course offerings in mass communication. The results showed that 65% of the schools offered a course in mass communication and 72% offered an introductory course. Most of the introductory courses had been offered for more than five years. The survey course was offered primarily in the degree-oriented, transfer educational programs, and most academic administrators indicated that they had confidence in their survey course instructor. Speciality media courses dealing with television, film, radio, and newspapers were well-established in the college curricula. Few of the schools, however, offered any type of communication degree program and fewer still planned to initiate such programs in the near future. (FL)
