Even though critical thinking is a core competence in the work of journalists and communication professionals, no attention has been paid to the development of scientific thinking and personal epistemologies. This project focuses on development of scientific thinking during the academic studies in journalism, communication and media studies. The project produces knowledge for development of teaching and to ensure the quality of academic education for media and communication professionals.
