We are one of three accredited schools of media and journalism in Ohio accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC).
Accreditation matters. It signifies that a program meets rigorous national standards for excellence, as evaluated by peers and practitioners in the field.
“Accreditation is an assurance of quality in professional education in journalism and mass communications. Students in an accredited program can expect to find a challenging curriculum, appropriate resources and facilities, and a competent faculty. Accredited programs may offer scholarships, internships, competitive prizes, and other activities unavailable in non-accredited programs. Accredited programs in journalism and mass communications offer the assurance that they have been evaluated by academic peers and leading practitioners and have met the tests of the nine standards.” (ACEJMC)
The School of Media and Journalism, previously Journalism and Mass Communication, has been continuously accredited by ACEJMC since 1965. It was most recently re-accredited in 2015.
