ACEJMC is the national organization that evaluates journalism and mass communication programs. All accredited programs are reviewed every six years.
UNC Hussman has been accredited since 1958.
The accreditation process includes an extensive self-study conducted the year prior to a site visit. The school’s most recent self-study was completed and submitted to ACEJMC in September 2020 and subsequently updated to reflect activity and changes during the COVID-related site visit pause and was resubmitted to ACEJMC in September 2021 in advance of the rescheduled site visit Oct. 10-13, 2021.
ACEJMC voted in April 2022 to provisionally reaccredit the school. Please see the school's self-study, site team report and other accreditation-related materials at https://tarheels.live/unchussmanselfstudy20192020.
