Summary

Attitudes of journalism faculty members regarding liberal arts in the journalism curriculum are described, based on the results of a 1976 survey of 5,948 faculty members in nine professional program areas. Comparisons are also made to 1958 survey findings. As a group, the journalism faculty were more favorable in general toward liberal studies than were the other eight professional faculties. A trend appearing since 1958 is that journalism faculty in increased numbers expressed curricular preference for those liberal studies that have relevance to journalism. This trend was evident in the other eight professions as well. The journalism faculty also felt that liberal studies should be allocated a lesser proportion of curricular time relative to that allocated to professional studies. At the same time, there is a trend toward taking the interests and aspirations of individual students into account in establishing academic requirements for professional programs. The faculty expressed an increased reluctance to retain extensive lists of required subjects, and a corresponding press toward making both the selection and time of scheduling of specific liberal arts subjects at the option of students, and presumably, their academic advisors.
