A Future for Journalism Schools?

How long can journalism schools keep feeding students into an industry that is staggering? Well, the University of Colorado at Boulder announced today that it will start the process of “program discontinuance” for the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Another university committee, according to an AP report, will look into what a new “information and communication technology” program might constitute at the University of Colorado.  The 741 undergraduate and graduate students are being assured that they will be able to complete their degrees, whatever the decisions that will be made.

The time of reckoning is fast approaching in media education. One hopes that such committees will come up with compelling solutions, and not just for the sake of the students and faculty but also for the good of the larger society. It is not an easy task.
