MIAMI: Por problemas de presupuesto, FIU podría fundir las Facultades de Periodismo, Arquitectura y Artes
(NP)-But in the dollars-and-cents goals important to FIU administrators — fundraising and boosting enrollment — the J-school has lagged. Enrollments have been stagnant at around 1,700 students for three years, and fundraising hasn’t met expectations.
Perhaps influenced by those monetary concerns, FIU is now considering a merger between its journalism school and College of Architecture + The Arts. The new combined college would probably get a new name (such as adding “communications” somewhere in the title), and journalism would continue as a “school” within this larger umbrella college. Journalism would still be an available degree track, as would the school’s other offerings in broadcast media, public relations, and advertising. (En Naked Politics)
