This study of journalism training analyzes training programs in 70 countries and lists 700 training institutions around the world. This first worldwide survey of communication training since 1958 was sponsored by UNESCO. In analyzing different programs, the study examines such areas as the type of institution in which training is given, the kinds of courses offered, entrance requirements, the number of students, qualifications of educators, diplomas or degrees awarded and the placement of graduates. It also explores different press concepts and, in particular, it notes the massive changes that have taken place in Eastern and Central Europe.
