The article discusses the emergence of the Internet at journalism schools. All professional students at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism have been trained to work on the Internet. According to the author, the school was early to embrace the Internet and other new technologies for delivering journalism. A New Media major was established at the school in 1994, but the Internet was treated as one of the several forms of journalism in which a student could specialize. Many of the students of the university who major in one of the old media are finding that they spend much of their day working on their news organization's Web site.
