Department of Mass Communications


Accreditation by ACEJMC distinguishes St. Cloud State's Department of Mass Communications as one of the Midwest's top programs.

And each year, our students show how good they are by winning major state, regional and national awards for their work in our campus outlets and organizations.

What does it mean?

ACEJMC is the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, which evaluates professional journalism and mass communications programs in colleges and universities.

Every six years, St. Cloud State's department conducts a self-assessment and is visited by an accreditation team for evaluation in nine different areas, including:

  • Curriculum and instruction
  • Diversity and inclusiveness
  • Resources, facilities and equipment
  • Student services

The department's ACEJMC accreditation assures our students they are getting outstanding education and have access to the faculty and resources they need to be successful. It also has earned the department respect in the media industry, where our students have a reputation for being well trained, well-educated and ready to excel professionally.
