The Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC) voted unanimously to grant Morgan State University’s School of Global Journalism and Communication (SGJC) full accreditation, a first for the school since its launch in 2013. The vote makes Morgan only the second university in the state of Maryland to have an accredited school of journalism, a distinction that means compliance with nine universally recognized standards. Morgan’s accreditation is valid for a term of six years.
With ACEJMC’s vote on Saturday, April 25, Morgan now joins accredited journalism/mass communications programs in the U.S. and other nations, including Chile, Dubai, Mexico, New Zealand, and Qatar. The University of Maryland, College Park’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism is the only other ACEJMC-accredited program in Maryland. Morgan is only the fifth Historically Black College or University (HBCU) school of journalism and mass communications to receive accreditation.
