Public Accountability

Our department wishes to remain transparent and accountable to the community and the student attending our institution.

The Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Public Communications has a retention rate of students similar to other programs in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Programs such as English and Psychology have similar or slightly lower retention rates while History and Sociology have higher rates. 

The majority of students who graduate from the program are transfer students. Therefore, the first-time freshmen graduation rates are not the best measure of our efforts to graduate students. We make concerted efforts to reach out to students through advising and help them finish their degree program.   

Note: Student's degree level, program study and full/part-time status are determined at their entry point.
