Savannah State University today announced the reaffirmation of accreditation for its mass communications program by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications.
It is the first reaffirmation for the program, which was first accredited in 2007. SSU was informed of the unanimous decision to reaffirm on May 3, and officials say the decision is a testament to the program’s faculty members and their collective vision for student success.
“The ACEJMC reviewers recognized that our faculty have succeeded in integrating several approaches of mass communication into a coherent curriculum that educates students for practice in the evolving new media,” said Reynold Verret, Ph.D., provost and vice president of Academic Affairs at SSU.
Savannah State is home to one of only two mass communications programs in the state of Georgia to earn ACEJMC accreditation.
