The Journalism Institute offers rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors an opportunity to explore journalistic techniques and approaches to produce journalism in a variety of media formats.
Students move beyond the traditional methods of communicating news and explore using Twitter and other social media through their mobile devices to find and interview sources, take and format pictures, and shoot and edit video. These elements get scripted to create packages online and on the air. The program takes advantage of Emerson College's state-of-the-art journalism labs giving students access to the ultimate multimedia learning environment.
