Teaching Journalism and Mass Communication in the Trend Toward Convergence: A Content Analysis of Faculty Hiring Announcements With a New Media Emphasis

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study is a content analysis of faculty positions advertised by Journalism and Mass Communication programs that were seeking new media faculty in the 2007-2008 recruiting season. It reports an overview of the hiring trends in the discipline. Results show a striking growth in the demands of new media faculty. Overall, institutions were looking for Ph.D. holders who had established professional careers and accumulated teaching and research experience. In particular, new media positions require extensive new-media-specific expertise. The study attempts to provide useful indicators of the employment outlook and hiring trends for applicants seeking new media and technology teaching positions. It also hopes to enable applicants to have a better sense of what employers want and for which positions they should realistically apply. In addition, the results of this study may be useful to journalism and mass communication programs that recruit and prepare future faculty.
