We are proud to be one of approximately 100 programs in the United States to be accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC). Being accredited means we have met the standards set by a review board of some of the best faculty from fellow accredited colleges and universities. Our curriculum challenges and gives our students the foundation they need to enter the communication and journalism field post-graduation.
Understanding retention rates

Understanding graduation rates
