Another sign of what PR's future setting may be like — less reliant on the news media — comes from an American Journalism Review report that journalism school enrollments have fallen for two years in a row. "Researchers," says the piece, "don't have enough data to know if this represents the start of a trend, but they think the recent declines may have been triggered by negative publicity about layoffs in the news industry."

Such news understandably sets parents and young people to wondering about where to invest in the future. These tides are noted in a study by the University of Georgia.
