According to the school’s website, journalism
instruction was first introduced at the university in 1936 and eventually was
added as an academic major in 1940. In the 1950s, a master’s program was also
added. Both the undergraduate and graduate programs grew for almost 30 years
before the undergraduate program was canceled in 1978, and the remaining staff
and the school’s other resources were refocused on the extremely successful
master’s program. Ever since 1978, students at UC Berkeley could take a few
undergraduate courses in journalism and communications, but there was no longer
an undergrad degree in journalism.
