|A Tradition of Excellence|
Since 1979, when it was only two years old, the Department of Journalism has been nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education for Journalism and Mass Communications. The department was re-accredited in 1997-98. In 1999 the department merged with the broadcasting program and the University created the School of Journalism & Broadcasting.
In 2004 and again in 2010, the School in its new configuration was re-accredited. Being accredited means the school adheres to high standards, including emphasis in liberal arts and sciences education in the attainment of a professional communications degree. The majors in advertising, broadcasting, news/editorial journalism, public relations and photojournalism are scrutinized by the council, which is made up of educators and representatives of 20 professional and six educational communication organizations in the United States.
