Emory’s Journalism School

Emory University in Atlanta says it’s discontinuing its Journalism school to focus on other majors. The Dean of the school says it’s a bad decision. Not me. When aspiring journalists ask me which major they should pursue, my answer usually is “History”. A double major in “Speech and English” is my second recommendation. But if a young person is determined to get a “Journalism” degree, there are plenty of other universities offering them. Columbia, Northwestern and UGA are three of the many.

    Seems like you’re pretty unfamiliar with the program over there. Emory made its students in the department co-major so that they all would have an additional major to compliment the journalism. By all accounts it seemed like a pretty successful program, they’ve had a lot of alumni go on to work with some very prominate outlets. Definitely a big loss for the school.

      You’re right Dave. Only know what I’ve read in the local newspaper, the AJC. We at WSB have had several excellent Emory graduates over the years. Don
