As I'm sure you all have heard, Emory has made the decision to phase out the Emory Journalism Program over the course of the next two years. Emory's journalism program is one of the most comprehensive, well-rounded journalism programs in the nation. Majors graduate with the skill set to enter into the media platform of their choice and many go on to intern and work for industry leaders. The program also requires students to have a second major, so they finish with invaluable writing skills, critical thinking ability, engagement with current events, and with another specific field of knowledge. This program has had an incredible impact on the success of alumni and current students alike. The great relationships Emory has with The NY Times, CNN, the AJC, WABE, and other local and national organizations are all due to the quality and reputation of the program and those involved in it. Losing this program would be devastating to the many students who wish to pursue this important career path and those who support it. The journalism program is responsible for adding to Emory's already strong reputation and prestigious background. Please join me in reaching out to Emory administration in an attempt to have it reconsider what would be a huge mistake.
