School applications are highest in six years

May 4, 2011

Journalism students meet with Dean Paul Voakes every month for Cokes with Voakes.

The school received the highest number of applications for fall 2011 in six years. The SJMC admitted 171 of the 313 applicants or 55 percent. The school has 750 majors this spring, with more than 250 graduating this spring and summer.

Prejournalism students apply to be admitted into one of five sequences: Advertising, Broadcast News, Broadcast Production, Media Studies or News-Editorial.

CU admissions reported last week that 200 prejournalism majors have confirmed they will attend CU next fall — about 20 more than confirmed at this time last year before the restructuring process began.
