Broadcast journalism is the 225th most popular degree in America, with 861 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It narrowly lost to #224 Culinary Arts.

The degree is offered at a total of 68 colleges across the nation, and is the 225th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 2% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that in the neighborhood of half of colleges offering broadcast journalism are public making it a pretty accessible field.

The southeast produces the most broadcast journalism graduates, largely led by Northern Kentucky University, while it’s the Atlantic Coast Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, New York ranks highest, with particular help from CUNY Brooklyn College and SUNY College at Brockport.

All that being said, no individual school produces more broadcast journalism graduates than Long Beach City College, which graduated 76 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study broadcast journalism). More students studied broadcast journalism as a percentage of total students at Rust College than any other college.
