IDEA WAS LONG CONTEMPLATED
Practical Instruction Will Be
Given, Leading to a
li. S. Degree.
The Department of Journalism of the
Univerit of Missouri is open for the
first time with the session of 1908-9.
Instruction in journalism heretofore has
consisted merely of occasional lectures
bv vi-itimr journalists. The new depart
ment will sive regular courses leading
to a decree. Bachelor of Science in
Journalism. The department is co-ordinate
with the other departments of the
University I-iw, 51edicine, Agricul
ture, Engineering, the Teachers College,
the College of Arts and Science.
The tablishment of the Department
of Journalism has long been contem
plated at the University of 5Hssouri.
It was uiged in the alumni address
ilelienil in 1S79 by Leonidas 51. Law
son, of New York. Charles E. Yeatcr,
of Sedalia, while a member of the State
Senate, introduced in that body a bill
establishing a chair of journalism. The
bill was not passed, however, and failed
nf adoption. The General Assembly, in
1905. and again in 1907, made appro
priation for instruction in journalism.
Tin Board of Curators, in 1900, dur
ing Gov. Stone's administration, offered
the head-hip of the department to a
distinguished Mis-ouri journalist, who
declined. The Missouri Press Associa
tion, in the sjuiie year, unanimously
adopted resolutions presented by W. 0.
L Jcvvclt, of the Shelbina Democrat,
favoring the establishment of the de
partment. The curators then formally
established a chair of journalism and
placed it. temporarily, in the College of
Arts and Science, at that time the Aca

There is constant call for reporters,
editors, special writers, corresiondents,
publishers, and writers, men in all de
partments of journalism in city and
country, on daily, weekly and monthly
journals. It is to supply this demand
in the interest of the State, to furnish
well-equipped men for leadership in
journalism, with high ideals and special
training, that the department of journal
ism is established. It is to train for
journalism, not to make journalists. In
thus training for journalism the Uni
versity in large degree serves the State.
The course in journalism covers four
vears. It mav ue taKen in eonioinauon
