No news for UTS journalism

Nothing is decided on the review of the j-programme

A review of the journalism programme at UTS found it has “well-established tradition of educating journalists.” Which sounds very good indeed. But review head Oscar Westlund also found research by programme staff, “lacks international impact or thematic focus,” which apparently is bad.

Professor Westlund and colleagues proposed changes to address this, (CMM November 25) not all of which are universally endorsed by UTSers.

Critics can relax, at least for now. UTS management tells CMM, “the faculty and school will now progress with considering the recommendations. No actions or timeline are decided at this point.”
