Journalism Education: The View from the Provost's Office
Hamilton, John Maxwell
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v69 n3 p289-300 Sep 2014
Journalism education traditionally has occupied an uneasy space on the fringe of the university. Recent trends have not made its footing any more secure. The tension between the professional nature of journalism education and its scholarly aspirations, which tend away from applied research, are confusing to upper-level university administrators, who favor units that present a unified vision for achieving and maintaining excellence. To consider ways to improve the standing of journalism, this essay looks at the subject from the point of view of the provost, the campus chief academic officer.
