Nationally accredited program
The Department of Journalism at UW Oshkosh is one of only four accredited journalism programs in Wisconsin. The Department of Journalism has been accredited through the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications since 1978.
To maintain its status as an accredited program, the department is subject to review by the accreditation council every six years. The department must maintain 12 rigorous standards set by the council. This ensures that students in the program enjoy a high level of individual attention in a professional setting. Graduating from an accredited program gives students in the UW Oshkosh journalism program an immediate advantage in the job hunt.
