The Department of Journalism and Digital Communication at USF St. Petersburg strives for teaching excellence, supports faculty and student research and community and professional service, and promotes multicultural understanding. We work untiringly to graduate accomplished students who can make valuable contributions to and understand the workings of their chosen fields and to be excellent and active citizens.
The Department of Journalism and Media Studies was first accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications in 2004. In 2015, we completed our self study in preparation for a February, 2016 site visit. In 2017, the department re-branded as the Department of Journalism and Digital Communication.
