(Chicago) — The Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC) voted unanimously 21-0 to fully reaccredit the Department of Mass Communications and Journalism at Norfolk State University for another six years.
“The unanimous vote reflected ACEJMC’s enthusiastic acceptance of the case for reaccreditation presented in (1) our self-study report of 138 pages and 21 appendices, (2) ACEJMC site team interviews with students, faculty, administrators and alumni, and (3) ACEJMC site team inspections of our facilities, resources and prospects. It concluded eight months of collecting, collating and interpreting documents, involving multiple individuals and offices across campus — a period when I was honored to take hundreds of ACEJMC questions as well as reflect deeply on our collective identity,” said Dr. Nikhil Moro, Department Chair, who was present for the vote.
The department first received national accreditation from ACEJMC in 1999. The department’s Bachelor of Science degree has two tracks: general broadcast and journalism.
