On May 6, 2016, the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications unanimously voted to approve full accreditation for the University of South Florida St. Petersburg’s online M.A. program in Digital Journalism and Design.

Face-to-face undergraduate and graduate programs within USFSP’s Department of Journalism and Media Studies have been accredited since 2004, earning re-accreditation every five years since. This marks the first program review for DJD, and its initial accreditation. ACEJMC found each degree-seeking program offered by the Department of Journalism and Media Studies in compliance with each its nine standards for excellence.

While programs with multiple ACEJMC-accredited programs are rare, rarer still are accredited programs with online degrees. Today’s achievement validates the hard work our students and faculty have put forth since the first cohort of DJD students in fall, 2012.
