UGA NEW MEDIA INSTITUTE


PREFACE PREFEACE

The media are changing rapidly. Seismic shifts in audience, economics, and technology are shaking the very foundations. From the upheaval, a new media landscape is emerging. Higher education is at the epicenter of new media change. Universities have a unique role to play in understanding media and their impact. Beyond just unraveling the mechanisms of this powerful cultural influence, the study of media provides practical economic benefits for universities including jobs for graduates, revenue generation through commercialization, and economic development in a sector that offers desirable employment. Plus media industries need universities for the leadership and ideas that will drive growth and profitability. But how should higher education address this desirable and dynamic field? How can universities and colleges develop the programs, resources, and structure required by constituencies from industry to students? In short, what should universities do with, for, and about media? This report is the first step in exploration to discover the future of media education. “The Lay of the Land: Media Programs in Higher Education,” is a survey of how other universities teach and research media. It is a snapshot of a variety of programs at this specific moment in time. The universities covered in this report fall into six specific categories each with its own relevance to UGA: n Aspirational – Institutions UGA hopes to emulate n Comparator – Institutions currently comparable to UGA n Southeastern Conference – Institutions within the SEC n Regional – Institutions within UGA’s geographic region n Exemplar – Institutions recognized as leading the field n Noteworthy - Institutions with new approaches worth watching

In addition to charting the structure, organization, and resources of each of these programs, we asked about the biggest challenge they face. We hope that studying the lay of the land will offer useful guideposts for navigating the tricky terrain of change. Examining the programs and structures at other institutions should provide important information useful in determining whether and how UGA approaches to media education need to change.

INTRODUCTION This report is designed to provide a record of the way communication and media-related programs are structured at a variety of universities in the United States. The universities were selected from the University of Georgia list of Aspirational, Comparator, and SEC institutions. www.oir.uga.edu/comps/asppeers.html The Regional institutions were selected from universities not on the other lists, but offer communication or media programs in the southeast United States. The Exemplar institutions were selected based on the notoriety of their communication or media programs. The Noteworthy institutions were selected based on the new approaches that their communication programs are taking. The following report details the university, where the media program is located, the dean, department head, or chair of that reporting unit, the departments and degree programs offered, as well as any additional institutes or special programs.

COLOR CODING Sections are color coded as follows for easy identification according to the type of institution. Aspirational Peer Institutions Comparator Peer Institutions SEC Institutions Regional Institutions Exemplar Institutions Noteworthy Institutions

BIGGEST CHALLENGES

THE LAY OF THE LAND

59


Keeping pace with the rapid changes that digital technology is bringing to the media industry and the journalism profession. This requires constant changes in the curriculum and reallocation of resources to prepare students for careers in digital media. University of California, Berkeley Department of Journalism

Maintaining our traditional balance between a top-notch liberal arts education and a 21st century skills education at a time of shrinking budgets and reduced resources at the university overall and specifically in the College of Liberal Arts. We remain one of the most popular undergraduate programs on campus, but our resources do not match the demand for our program because of overall institutional deficits. University of Minnesota School of Journalism & Mass Communication

Maintaining quality production facilities that are in line with current industry standards and meeting student demands for media production courses while seeking to remain small and hands-on. University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Department of Communication Studies

Putting activities on hold due to budget cuts. We have had to hold off expanding, starting a Ph.D. program and hiring adjuncts for our practice classes. University of Virginia Department of Media Studies

Striving to continue to provide the best possible learning experience for our students and to prepare them for a perpetually evolving media landscape while simultaneously dealing with the economic challenges confronting most public universities in America. Pennsylvania State University College of Communications

Keeping our curriculum at pace and ahead of technological and professional development. Additionally, keeping our faculty up-to-date on the latest media technologies and pedagogy. Arkansas State University College of Communications

Trying to meld new media and new communications concerns with traditional literary studies and with cultural studies of science and technology. We are currently trying to craft a mission statement that brings together our quite varied faculty, research interests, and institutional roles. Georgia Institute of Technology School of Literature, Communication, & Culture

UGA NEW MEDIA INSTITUTE


BIGGEST CHALLENGES

Keeping up with the number of students interested in the major and providing adequate faculty and resources to serve the students in the major. Georgia College & State University Department of Mass Communication

Declining state support for higher education. Iowa State University of Science & Technology Greenlee School of Journalism & Communication

Due to a significant increase in research grants received by our faculty members, our college is continually seeking outstanding graduate students to participate in our research-intensive Ph.D. programs. Michigan State University College of Communication Arts & Sciences

Faculty resources meeting student demand. University of Arizona Department of Communication

With the rapid rise of digital, mobile and social media, audiences can access and even create media content when they want, how they want, and wherever they want. Therefore, our challenge is simple to articulate, but difficult to resolve: How do we focus on such a rapidly moving target? Louisiana State University Manship School of Mass Communication

Reformulating the current program to focus on information and communication technology and properly incorporating computer science and mathematics courses. University of California, Davis Department of Communications

Funding - State legislatures will not be inclined to restore higher education budgets anytime soon. Beyond funding, projecting an identity to stakeholders that is consistent with our legacy but current with the realities of shifting vocational opportunities and students’ expectations. University of Kentucky College of Communication & Information Studies

The student to faculty ratio in the programs. The student population is growing faster than we can get approval to all faculty lines. University of Alabama College of Communication & Information Studies

BIGGEST CHALLENGES

Lack of institutional support for an area that typically does not generate large amounts of external funding. We also have a great need for a Ph.D. program, but are not able to implement one due to lack of funding. University of Arkansas Department of Communication

Keeping up with the demand for our majors. We seem to be getting more applicants and no additional faculty. Auburn University Department of Communication & Journalism

Creating an innovative curriculum that can work now and also in the future. Given the pressure to provide training in high-level technology, the tension between the skills courses and critical thinking, conceptual courses is only going to get more intense. University of South Carolina School of Journalism & Mass Communications

Dealing with the reductions that have been made in our base budget funding and having to do more with less available resources. University of Tennessee – Knoxville College of Communication & Information

Meeting student demand for courses due to the small size of the department and managing student desire for internships. Vanderbilt University Department of Communication Studies

Being in the College of Science, coupled with less and less funding from the state, there are expectations for the school to acquire externally funded research. This is a very big challenge for the school. University of Central Florida Nicholson School of Communication

Not enough full time faculty for the large student population. New York University Department of Media, Culture & Communication

Managing changes in curriculum while being short handed. Ohio University E.W. Scripps School of Journalism
