Abstract

This study aims to verify when and how early education in journalism and communication studies appeared in Korea and concretely review its historical meaning and characteristics. For this purpose, first, major discussions on early journalism education in Korea are reviewed. Then the curricula related to journalism and communication studies from the Japanese colonial period until the 1950s and the contents and characteristics of such education are discussed. The journalism and communication studies at that time seemed to refer exclusively to newspaper journalism. Accordingly, the necessity for journalism education was emphasized in the view that better journalists could be developed by teaching journalism in a more comprehensive manner. In the meantime, subjects related to journalism in Korea began to be offered starting in 1925 under the Japanese occupation. Early journalism education was rather practical, but since 1955 it has been taught as a social science with Seoul National University as the center.
