The journalism industry is changing quickly. And journalism schools often are slow to catch up.
That’s according to Jeff Jarvis, the director of the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. At many journalism schools, Jarvis said, it can take three years to get a new course into the curriculum. For an industry that can be shaken up over the course of a few months, that’s eons.
