Diane Gayeski, dean of the Roy H. Park School of Communications
Gayeski wrote a piece for the Huffington Post about why the Park School isn’t accredited through the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications, and why accreditation doesn’t always equal legitimacy. She says that “the accreditation standards for ACEJMC actually limit the number of communications courses that students can take. They require that students take a minimum of 80 credits outside of the school while we require that students take at least 60 credits of their coursework outside of communications. But communications is a complex and rapidly changing field; to be competitive, students need a preparation that is both deep and broad.”
