The results are in: the Broadcast Education Association (BEA)'s 2022 Recognition of Institutional Excellence in Media, an annual ranking of schools based on the creative achievement of their students, placed the University of Nebraska at Omaha 9th for audio programs, and 40th overall out of over 300 global institutions.
The rankings are founded on the results from the BEA Festival of Media Arts, an international media competition focused on both student and faculty creative endeavors.
In the last five years, over 5,000 student creative works were submitted from more than 300 institutions globally. Winners in the BEA Festival of Media Arts represent the top 20% of entries.
These placements show that the quality and consistency of UNO students' work is reliably excellent across the board; the overall rankings include the categories Audio, Documentary, Film & Video, Interactive Multimedia & Emerging Technologies, News, Scriptwriting, and Sports.
