English: Communication Studies Links

  • Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication
    The Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication is a non-profit, educational association of journalism and mass communication faculty, administrators, students and media professionals. Founded in Chicago, Illinois, in 1912, AEJMC has some 3,500 members around the world.

  • The Center for Public Integrity
    Billing its work as "watchdog journalism in the public interest," this organization and its site are the antithesis of sound-bite broadcast news. The thoroughness with which it has carried out its mission since its 1989 founding has garnered it accolades from major journalism groups. Projects that other news organizations cannot--or will not--undertake are investigated with ferocity by staff and a network of journalists. One of the links (Journalist Ethics, on the dropdown menu at About Us) details the mandatory steps staff must follow to ensure ethical and accurate reporting; this will be particularly valuable for journalism students.

    Communication research is a large and diverse field that includes inquiry by humanists, social scientists and critical and cultural studies scholars.
