Defense Information School
The Defense Information School (DINFOS) is a component of the DoD’s Defense Media Activity, located at Fort George G. Meade, Md. The school trains DoD civilian, international military, and interagency students in variety of subject areas including public affairs, print journalism, photography, video production, broadcast journalism, broadcast equipment maintenance, and various forms of graphic design and digital media.
DINFOS maintains national accreditation through the Council on Occupational Education (COE). In addition, the American Council on Education (ACE) reviews DINFOS courses for college credit recommendations, assisting students with their civilian education goals and providing an external validation of the school’s rigorous training programs.
For the last 55 years, DINFOS has trained communicators across the DOD to help their organizations achieve strategic and operational goals through applied public affairs strategies and visual information products.
Our mission is to grow and sustain a corps of professional organizational communicators who fulfill the communication needs of the military services, government leaders and audiences.
