Moving toward a new age : a curriculum study and proposal for Ball State University's Department of Telecommunications : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
This project discusses the current curriculum for Ball State University's Department of Telecommunications and proposes a new curriculum by adding classes and options. Along with an examination of other schools' programs, this project utilizes a survey of senior telecommunications students, designed specifically for this project, as a basis for the changes in the department curriculum. The new curriculum is developed with specific regard to new technology and current issues in the media, while maintaining Ball State University's commitment to liberal arts. This new curriculum is presented as a suggestion to move the department into a new age of communication education.
