J-schools

Looking to attend the best college or university to study journalism?  The answer to “the best” journalism school is not as cut-and-dry as it may seem.

To really position yourself at the “best” school, you’ll need to focus your interests into something more specific.  Are you looking at photojournalism? Broadcast? Print?

College Media Matters has listed the top 50 journalism schools in America.

You can also look into the ACEJMC’s list of accredited schools; although, top broadcast schools such as Ithaca College are not listed.

Whichever school you choose, be sure to be a good journalist and do your research!  The more you know, the easier it will be to make the best choice for you!
