academic journalism/ journalism as a branch of academic study


Explanation:
I think this question is trickier than it looks. Yes, normally we can also refer to journalism when it is a branch of study, for example in a student prospectus. However, if we say here that 'journalism emigrated', it sounds as though there were no journalists left in the country, when it really means the group of academics who studied journalism left. We have to make this clear. Adding 'science of' certainly makes the point, but there is an eversion in English to using 'science' with reference to the arts. That is why I am making these two alternative suggestions.
