Educating Journalists book
Journalism has been taught at a number of colleges and universities for about 100 years. Willard G.Bleyer began teaching a journalism course at the University of Wisconsin in 1905, and his scholarly interests later greatly influenced the field. The country’s first separate School of Journalism, with newspaperman Walter Williams as dean, began in 1908 at the University of Missouri. The Pulitzer School of Journalism at Columbia University, backed with a $2 million gift from the New York World publisher, enrolled its first class in 1912.
