Measuring the Impact of Globalization on German and U.S. University Students’ Attitudes and News Judgments

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



Abstract:

This study explores whether or not journalism and mass communication students at a U.S. university and a German university have adopted their respective national attitudes and whether those attitudes are evident in students’ decisions about the newsworthiness of events. Analyses showed that students generally held the same attitudes as the general adult population of their country and often showed even stronger support for many attitudes. However, student attitudes were not significantly associated with decisions on the newsworthiness of hypothetical scenarios structured to elicit those attitudes. Most notably, German and U.S. students dramatically differed in their estimations of newsworthiness in 28 of 34 news stories. The results have relevance for global journalism curriculum development.
