Idaho’s School of Journalism earns first-time accreditation

  The School of Journalism and Mass Media at the University of Idaho is now the first fully-accredited journalism program in Idaho.

  The Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications voted earlier this month to accredit the university's program. It is the first time such a program has been accredited in Idaho by the accrediting council and represents a significant upgrade in the school's status among U.S. journalism programs.UI is now one of 116 accredited programs

   Other accredited journalism programs in the Northwest are at the University of Washington, University of Oregon and University of Montana.

   Dr. Kenton Bird has been director of the UI program since 2003. He earned a Ph.D. in American Studies at Washington State University.
