O presidente da Universidade de Columbia continua a discutir o ensino do jornalismo. Responde a uma entrevista sobre o assunto na Columbia Journalism Review.
E o que todos queremos saber é:

Can you give any specific examples of the types of change that might be in order?
I think it’s extremely important to have some sense of political theory, and politics, similarly with economic theory or principles; one might very well have an understanding of the arts, opportunities to understand the arts, or scientific practices and new discoveries. Another possibility is to give students the opportunity to develop expertise in a given area, or to understand the history of your field. There is an obvious need for ethics. How you do it is debatable. I tend to be one who favors integration of ethics into all courses rather than isolate it in a single course. I think it’s also possible to think differently about the time frame of a journalist’s education. One of the things we know about journalism is that reporters go from one field to another field, and perhaps there should be more opportunities for journalists to return to a university setting for a short period of time to gather deeper knowledge.
