2013 Annual Survey of Journalism Mass Communication Enrollments: Enrollments Decline for Third Consecutive Year
Becker, Lee Bernard; Vlad, Tudor; Simpson, Holly Anne
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v69 n4 p349-365 Dec 2014
Enrollments in journalism and mass communication programs in the United States in the fall of 2013 were down from a year earlier for the third year in a row. Enrollments dropped at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels, and the number of freshmen and sophomores were down dramatically from a year earlier. Enrollments in the journalism specialty have dropped, and enrollments in advertising and public relations also have stagnated. While the overall field of communication also seems to be slowing in terms of growth, the subfield of journalism and mass communication has been particularly hard hit.
