GUILLERMO ARIAS, JUAN; MONROY, EDISON and TOVAR, JUAN PABLO. Journalists' Education and Training: An Approach to Social Communication Programs after examining the Culture and Values in Bogota's Journalism. Signo pensam. [online]. 2010, vol.29, n.56, pp. 86-101. ISSN 0120-4823.
From a poststructuralist point of view and supported by empiric evidence, this article is an analysis initially focused on the role played by a specific type of university education in shaping the current state of journalism in Bogotá. We round up putting forward the preliminaries of an unexpected hypothesis: in order to capture both markets -students and media- undergraduate programs in social communication and journalism -at least in Bogota's universities- tend to adopt a pragmatic and indulgent logic which results in a loss of autonomy as far as the relevant academic field is concerned in detriment of journalistic professionalism.
