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 as an educator in a school journalism setting. Your knowledge of the teaching/advising aspects of scholastic journalism is the emphasis of this designation.
Because we have so many test sites and deadlines, we process applications submitted after a deadline (i.e. Feb. 1 for spring convention) on the next deadline (i.e. June 1 for JEA Advisers Institute, and Sept. 1 for fall convention).
