Leading the way in scholastic journalism & media education since 1924

Certified Journalism Educator

The Journalism Education Association wants its CJE to be an effective way for you to demonstrate your knowledge of the basics in journalism and media advising. We want you to be able to speak to multiple aspects of this career, including journalistic writing and editing, graphics and design, legal and ethical considerations and more.

There are three Options to apply for Certified Journalism Educator.

Option A is for those members with journalism degrees that include news writing, law and ethics, and advising publications credentials.

Option B is for members without all the credentials for Option A but who have taught/advised journalism for three years or more and want to take the CJE exam.

Option C is for JEA members associated with commercial/business or professional enterprises. They will take the CJE exam.

JEA hopes this exam allows the Certification Commission to assess fairly and consistently the abilities of JEA members who seek CJE status under Opt. B & C.
