CM Life wins 23 MPA awards

Central Michigan Life won 23 Michigan Press Association awards this year for quality in news writing, investigative reporting, feature stories, sports writing, multimedia reporting, editorials, photography, design and general excellence.

“It’s really humbling,” said spring 2013 Editor-In-Chief Aaron McMann. “It’s nice to know we’re still doing good things here and it’s nice to see them be recognized.”


​Enrollment, retention, graduation, and 

In the spirit of accountability and disclosure, CMU's ACEJMC (Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication)-accredited Department of Journalism is committed to publishing annually its enrollment (Table 1), retention, and graduation information (Table 2) for the public on this website.

Since the 2007-08 academic year​ (AY), 1,031 students have declared a major in the journalism department. Sixty-one percent (N = 632) have persisted as majors. Eighty-one percent (N = 514) of continuing majors have graduated from departmental programs in an average of 2.25 years since signing major. In AY 2014-15, 109 new students, who have signed majors since August 15, 2013, will join 119 continuing majors.

It should be noted that the department serves hundreds of interdisciplinary majors and hundreds of minors, but for purposes of this report, the focus is on declared JRN-designated majors.​
