Our accrediting body, the U.S.-based Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC), requires all accredited programs to publish graduation and retention rates on their websites. This policy is in compliance with expectations set by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), which recognizes ACEJMC.

The information reported below is accurate to the best of our knowledge and uses data gathered and made available by Qatar University’s Office of Institutional Planning and Development. 

These data are useful to prospective students who might be considering mass communication as a major at Qatar University.
