Why be a journalist? Students’ motivations and role conceptions in the new age of journalism

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



Abstract:

This study of the motivations and role conceptions of today’s journalists has shown many similarities among students today and yesterday, but significant differences between students and professionals. A new motivation appeared, marked by having experience with journalism at an early age. The students’ ranking of the importance of journalists’ roles compared to professionals showed no significant correlation. Both ranked the Investigative/Interpretive as most important, but professionals ranked the Adversarial role as second while students ranked it last.
