The ACEJMC accreditation team visited the SJMC in November

The Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC) voted unanimously to re-accredit the Texas State University School of Journalism and Mass Communication on May 1, 2015 at its national meeting in Phoenix, AZ. 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 University 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 Texas State 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 Texas State University School of Journalism and Mass Communication is one of only three ACEJMC accredited public university programs in Texas.

We would like to thank faculty and staff, especially SJMC director Dr. Judy Oskam, who worked diligently to make this happen.
