Another honor for the University of Montana Journalism School was announced this week.

The school was ranked ninth in the nation for best college journalism program. The poll was conducted by NewsPro magazine and the Radio Television Digital News Association.

New professionals were surveyed for the poll to rank both graduate and undergraduate programs, according to a UM news release. The school also had the lowest yearly cost of attendance for both in-state and out-of-state undergrads.

The J-school has programs in print/online journalism, print/Web design, photojournalism, specialty reporting, television production, television news/documentary and radio. The graduate program deals with natural resource and environmental science journalism.

The school was established in 1914. The school will celebrate its centennial next September.

And, in a nod to transparency, I am a graduate of the school. (That doesn't make it less worthy!)
