St. Cloud State University has once again been nationally recognized by the Broadcast Education Association for being one of the top broadcast schools in the country based on the creative achievements of students.
The Broadcast Education Association — which is a premier international academic media organization driving insights, excellence in media production and career advancement for educators, students, and professionals — recognized St. Cloud State in three categories: Sports, News and Overall programs.
In Sports Production, St. Cloud State was ranked No. 4, followed by a ranking of No. 33 in News and No. 21 in the Overall list.
This is the second consecutive year SCSU has been nationally recognized as a top broadcast school in the nation by the Broadcast Education Association, which began its award process in 2022.
The Broadcast Education Association’s rankings are founded on the results from the Broadcast Education Association Festival of Media Arts, a preeminent international media competition focused on student and faculty creative endeavors. In the last five years, over 5,000 student creative works have been submitted from more than 300 member institutions around the globe. Entries go through a juried review in the following competitions: Audio, Documentary, Film & Video, Interactive Multimedia & Emerging Technologies, News, Scriptwriting and Sports.
The rankings are an evaluation of the quality and consistency of the creative works of students produced at one institution compared to those at other institutions based on the past five-year period of student success. Additionally, there is an Overall Ranking based on a combined achievement across the multiple media creative disciplines.
St. Cloud State has a strong tradition of offering award-winning programs and opportunities to students, including Husky Productions, UTVS, KVSC, University Chronicle and more. Learn more about St. Cloud State’s nationally accredited Mass Communications program.
