— University of Colorado may drop Journalism School

The University of Colorado has announced a proposal to discontinue its School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Faced with budget cuts and citing the rapid evolution of digital media, the university will consider creating a broader school of information, and decide whether it should close its traditional journalism school.

An exploratory panel will work this semester to consider a new program for “information and communication technology.”

The School of Journalism and Mass Communication has 647 undergraduates, 58 master’s students and 26 doctoral students. Another 684 undergraduates are in the pipeline as “pre-journalism” majors.
