The unit, founded in 1905, has been continuously accredited every six years since 1948 by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications and was last reaccredited in 2004. Accreditation is based on the principle that students need a broad-based, liberal arts education, as well as a solid core of courses within the discipline.

Until these requirements are successfully completed, advertising and journalism and mass communication students are designated as pre-majors. A copy of the EUT policy, including additional details and requirements, is available from the Greenlee School.

To become an advertising major, a student must successfully complete Jl MC 101, 110, and 201 (with a C+ or better) and Advrt 230.

Graduates most likely will work in journalism (magazines, newspapers, electronic media or on-line media) and public relations and public information as well as related disciplines that expect articulate and informed writing and presentation. Students work with advisers to develop programs of study designed to prepare them for work in a variety of communication-specific areas: electronic media, print media (magazine and/or newspaper), public relations/public information, science communication or visual communication.

To be a Jl MC major, a student must successfully complete Jl MC 101, 110 and 201 (with a C+ or better).

Graduate Study

The Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication offers work for a master of science degree in journalism and mass communication. Two tracks are available: one for students who desire specialized study in communication theory and research; the second for students who wish to strengthen professional strategic skills.

Majors plan programs of study in one of two tracks:

I. Communication as theory and research -- The School offers advanced academic preparation in communication theory and research leading to the master of science degree. Graduate work prepares students to use and contribute to research and scholarship in the field of communication. The degree requires a thesis or creative component based on original research, which must be defended successfully before a committee at the end of the program.

Areas of research emphasis include: science and risk communication, media performance, media effects, advertising, public relations, political communication, communication technology, law and ethics, international communication and visual communication.

II. Professional and Strategic Communication -- The School offers advanced professional study in journalism and mass communication leading to the master of science degree. Graduate work prepares students for professional careers in a variety of mass communication fields. Students with limited training or experience in journalism and mass communication may include skills courses in their programs for no credit. The degree requires either a creative component or thesis.

All students must complete four core courses: Introduction to Graduate Study in Journalism and Mass Communication (Jl MC 592), Theories of Mass Communication (Jl MC 501), Communication Research Methods (Jl MC 502) and Seminars in Mass Communication (Jl MC 598). Each student selects elective courses based on his/her area of emphasis and career goal, in consultation with the student's major professor and Program of Study Committee.

The Greenlee School graduate program offers minor work for students majoring in other departments. The M.S. minor requires Jl MC 501 (Communication Theory), Jl MC 510 (Communication Strategies), and one other course in journalism and mass communication for a total of 9 credits taken within the Greenlee School.
