1. The Annual Survey of Journolism 6. Mass Communication Enrollments is conducted in the James M. Cox Jr. Center for International Mass Communication Training and Research, a unit of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communi-cation at the University of Georgia. The 2000 survey was made possible through the support of the following sponsors: American Society of Newspaper Editors, Association for Education in Journalism & Mass Communication, Association of Schools of Journalism & Mass Communi-cation, Cox Newspapers Inc.,The Freedom Forum, Gannett, Hearst Corporation, Jane Pauley and NBC. Magazine Association of Georgia, National Association of Broadcasters, Newsletter & Electronic Publishers Foundation, Newspaper Association of America Foundation, Radio Television News Directors Association, Scripps Howard Foundation, and Grady College of Journalism & Mass Communica-tion, University of Georgia. 2. The 2000 survey included data on twelve new programs and 450 programs that had been listed in the two directories a year earlier. Six programs from 1999 were eliminated from the 2000 survey because the programs were no longer active or did not include a mass communication focus. 3. The accrediting listing was verified against the listing for the Accrediting Council on its web site, and the ASJMC listing was verified against records at the organization’s headquarters in Columbia, S.C. 4. Indiana University’s School of Journalism and the journalism program at the Indianapolis Campus of IU are treated as separate programs in this analysis, though they share accreditation.
