Does Graduate Work Matter? Characteristics of Journalists Who Went to Grad School.
Schultz, Tanjev
This paper reports on a secondary analysis of two large surveys of United States news journalists and newspaper journalists which compares characteristics of graduate-school-trained journalists to those with only a college education. The paper states that the analysis also considers differences between studies in and outside the communication field. It also states that besides demographics and job characteristics, assumed differences in perceived influences of education, in journalistic role concepts and audience perceptions were tested. Overall, the analysis revealed few differences, but journalists with graduate education were found to be more likely than college educated journalists to work for larger news organizations, and to support an interpretive role. Contains 2 tables of data, 17 notes, and 16 references. (Author/NKA)
