Next Sunday through Wednesday (November 1-4), the School of Journalism will host a site team from the Accrediting Council for Education in Journalism and Mass Communications. These five people will be visiting campus and Martin Hall to review our undergraduate journalism program for re-accreditation. This is a very important event for the SOJ.
Currently, only 114 journalism programs in the country are nationally accredited. The fact that we are among this select group is something you can point to with pride on your resume, job applications, and in interviews.
We spent the summer compiling a report for this review, and we are now preparing for the site team members to visit us.
