Fedler, Fred; Carey, Arlen; Counts, Tim
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v53 n2 p31-39 Sum 1998
Examines the problems experienced with journalism and mass communication (JMC) programs in an era of retrenchment. Surveys 600 academicians from various disciplines. Finds that concerns of JMC educators are shared by colleagues in other disciplines; and that JMC programs seem more likely to be merged than eliminated. Suggests eight strategies for JMC programs to improve their status in academia. (RS)
