2012 Annual Survey of Journalism and Mass Communication Enrollments: Enrollments Decline for Second Year in a Row
Becker, Lee B.; Vlad, Tudor; Simpson, Holly Anne
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v68 n4 p305-334 Dec 2013
Enrollments in journalism and mass communication programs in the United States have declined over the last two years, reversing a pattern of growth that has sustained the field for twenty years. It is a decline at a time of continued growth in enrollments at universities generally. It is a decline at a time when enrollments have been growing in the instructional field of communication of which journalism and mass communication is a part. The data indicate the decline, based on degrees granted, which is a reflection of enrollments. Communication has been growing consistently, but the journalism and mass communication subfield has been flat and is now declining as the 2012 Annual Survey of Journalism and Mass Communication Enrollments demonstrates.
