This article is based on a paper delivered at a round table on “Journalism Teaching and Curricula” held during the Congress “Journalism Education in the XXI Century” that took place at the University of Coimbra in December 2014. It debates the relationship between journalists and journalism education, advocating that there is still a need to overcome the traditional opposition between those who consider journalism as a profession that can be taught and those who foresee it as an activity to be learned on the job. The article also discusses some of the consequences of the low level of journalism professionalization and the changes in the epistemological positioning of higher education training in this field. The strong influence of the administrative research and of the American education model has led journalism teaching to position itself closer to social sciences than the humanities.
