Reasons Underlying The Choice Behind Seeking a Major in Journalism: The Journalism Degree Motivations Scale (JDMS)

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



Abstract:

Journalists are socialized into the profession through education. The purpose of the research was to develop and validate a measure determining the motivational variables underlying both intrinsic and extrinsic reasons why undergraduate students seek a degree in journalism, the Journalism Degree Motivations Scale (JDMS). It is important to examine motivations in order to understand why they pick the stories they do. Through a multi-method approach and exploratory factor analysis, it established a set of motivations that reflect existing theory and measures. The results show that the JDMS is composed of seven factors: social justice and responsibility, social prestige, sports media, public interaction, photography, writing, and a varied career.
