Abstract

Drastic, ongoing changes related to the emergence of new media and financial instability have wrought turmoil within the field of journalism. Many now working within – irrespective of platform – perceive seismic shifts in internal standards and audience expectations, and so are unsure of their responsibilities, much less how to fulfill them (Owens, 2007). And so, the question must be asked: In what ways should journalism education evolve in order to meet such challenges?
