The University of Missouri and the University of Kansas both have well-respected journalism programs, but neither school was able to land any journalism professors on the list of the “Top 50 Journalism Professors” for 2012.
The list was compiled by JournalismDegree.org. (LINK).
The closest either school came was Chad Edwards, who earned his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas, but is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Communication at Western Michigan.
“The final 50 professors were selected after a lengthy nomination period, and were included based on a variety of factors including the quality and quantity of publications they’ve authored, ranking of their academic institutions, as well as awards and honors they’ve earned,” spokesperson Katie Webber told Bottom Line Communications.
