Criteria for Professional Jouranlism and Mass Communication Programs

My second assignment Dr. Hussein was to search for the international accreditation associations other than the (ACEJMC)

In accessing the quality of journalism it is noted that internationally at least three
systems were being used in the accreditation and recognition practice( in the Uk, US and
the Francophone countries)

However, after researching the sources it was found out that is was not that the
equation is not that simple, as there are a considerable number of accre4diting and
quality assurance institutes world wide.

  A. ACEJMC:   ( United States)
The most prominent body or institutes( discussed in first part)

  B. ( EJTA) ( Europe)

The European Journalism Training Association is one of the associations involved in
The ( WJEC). It has developed its own set of learning out comes called the Tartu
Declaration that list 10 competencies enumerated by sub points.
The UK government driven system typically assessed an institution against its own
stated objectives rather than any external definition of excellence. This doesn’t easily
allow for a comparison between different institutions.

The ( EJTA) which was established in Brussels in 1990, groups more than 50 journalism centers, schools and universities.

From 23 countries across Europe, they work together to improve Journalism
Education in Europe enabling members to collaborate on exchanges and teachings
and research projects and meet regularly to exchange, ideas and information.

Membership of EJTA is institutional and not individual.. the association is a non
profit organization and legal body under Dutch Law. There are 52 members with
application from 8 pending.

Language barrier in Europe makes it difficult for journalism students than the case in the United States.

  C. The Francophne System” Theophraste Label”

Part of the AUF (University Agency for the Promotion of the French Language)

Institutional Network, the Théophraste...
