CU-Boulder: Eliminate journalism and create iSchool

February 18, 2011 at 12:17 pm Leave a comment

At schools that have closed down CS, journalism has been closed down too.  Colorado is now talking about closing down journalism, and to create a School of Information.  Is that the first step towards closing down CS, too, in keeping with the trend?  Isn’t it ironic, that CS innovations have led to the closing of Journalism, but that’s somehow joined with taking down CS, too?

The University of Colorado should eliminate its standalone journalism degree and create both a new school of information and an institute to study the “global digital future,” according to documents released Tuesday by the Boulder campus.

CU officials announced in August that they would take unprecedented steps to possibly close down CU’s traditional School of Journalism and Mass Communication, citing budget cuts and the rapid evolution of media.

Through the program discontinuance process, a CU panel and top campus leaders have recommended shutting down the traditional school and relocating its tenured professors elsewhere on campus.
