Journalism is undergoing a renaissance as ever-evolving technology changes our culture, society, and the social practice of journalism. At EMU, students learn to master journalism’s basics—research, reporting writing, and copyediting—while actively blogging, videotaping, and podcasting to create news in a new environment. Recent program graduates are now employed at the Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press, AnnArbor.com, WXYZ-TV, Heritage Newspapers, Q Syndicate, and other media outlets.

Journalism students gain practical writing, editing, and production skills by working for EMU’s award-winning student newspaper, The Eastern Echo. First called the “Normal News” when founded in 1881, The Eastern Echo has served the Eastern Michigan University and Ypsilanti communities as an independent newspaper for more than 130 years.
