The Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC) reaccredited the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Texas State University.
The unanimous vote took place May 1 during the ACCEJMC national meeting in Phoenix, Ariz. The school’s undergraduate program was found to be in compliance with all nine standards.
The ACEJMC site-visit team was generous in its praise of both Texas State students and faculty. Evaluators noted "an impressive record of student accomplishment in national, regional and state competitions." During their site visit the review team found “a lively student body proud of its work ethic and can-do commitment to professional performance.” The team wrote in its report that the School of Journalism and Mass Communication has “a faculty well balanced in academic and professional experience and expertise and committed to educating and mentoring students for productive careers in the digital world.”
The School of Journalism and Mass Communication is one of only three ACEJMC-accredited public university programs in Texas. With more than 2,100 majors, the School of Journalism and Mass Communication is one of the largest programs in the Southwest. The next visit of the re-accreditation team will be in the 2020-2021 academic year.
