Unpacking the four knowledges in journalism education

How to integrate different knowledges in the teaching of journalism has bedevilled decades of curriculum development. So, no surprise that integration is an issue currently consuming discussions around the programme for fourth year Journalism and Media Studies students at Rhodes.
