Abstract

A web-based survey of administrators (N = 59) and visual instructors (N = 60) was employed to examine the state of visual communication curricula among U.S. journalism and mass communication programs. Findings indicate courses were small, skills-based, and required for a limited number of students. Instructors had strong professional backgrounds, had strong opinions for expanding visual communication education, and had less confidence than administrators did that their students would have competence upon landing a job.
