Retention Data

Retention statistics typically identify the students who begin their freshman year as journalism majors. These same students are then tracked each year to determine what percentages of them continue as journalism majors throughout their sophomore, junior and senior year. The university’s Institutional Research has calculated the starting point in the journalism major as taking Journalism 221: Writing for the Media. Because the public relations major began in Fall 2015, there is no tracked data on a cohort in public relations.

Please note this data does not report which students attend full-time and which attend part-time, so the data does not reveal how many students chose to go full-time and graduate after four years.
