Title History of Spanish Journalism in higher education: a longitudinal study of undergraduate degrees (2000-2020) Summary This study examines the evolution of teaching of the history of Spanish journalism in media studies and journalism university degrees in Spain. The main aim is to analyse the evolution of teaching of theoretical subjects in these degrees, focusing on the history of Spanish journalism, in order to be able to offer a quantitative longitudinal study on the weight that history of journalism has, and has had, in core non-elective subjects at Spanish universities teaching the evolution of journalism. Therefore, we have studied the syllabi of the 37 universities that offer this degree in Spain over the past two decades (from the former Licenciatura degrees to the current ones being offered in the 2020-2021 academic year). The evolution shows that less and less importance is given to teaching the history of Spanish journalism as a compulsory subject and leads us to reflect on the academic trend to give greater importance to practical-technological topics. Keywords Journalism; university teaching; Spain; History of Journalism; professional profile.
