Due to low enrollment, two classes I was scheduled to teach this coming fall at Fordham University, Lincoln Center have been cancelled. The Broadcast Industry and Digital Media and Cyberculture were classes that were either rarely offered or have never offered before to undergraduates, according to my source in the Communication and Media Studies department.
Apparently, the college is aggressively canceling classes with fewer than ten students enrolled, even for advanced 3000-level courses, and because my classes had only single-digit enrollment numbers, they were erased.
But as two doors close, another opens. The department finds itself needing someone to teach another course, TV News and Today’s World, apparently with plenty of paying customers enrolled. I will be taking over the course this fall.
Look for the syllabus to be posted on my website at the end of this summer.
