When it rains, it pours.
As news outlets shrink, disappear or merge, j-schools are responding in kind:
COLLEGE PARK, Md., Dec. 11 – The Knight Center for Specialized Journalism will cease operations at the end of this month, it was announced today by Dean Kevin Klose of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland.
“The Center’s achievements in providing in-depth training for journalists to improve their competencies are well-known and highly regarded across the news industry,” Klose said. “The rapid changes in news media technology and economics require new thinking. This move will enable us to focus fully on designing new approaches to the challenges of 21st-century journalism.”
