Emory & Henry Mass Communications students gain extensive media experience during their college careers. As a result they can develop expertise that makes them competitive on a national scale. For example, two of our students have claimed one of a handful of prestigious International Television and Radio Society Summer Fellowships from approximately a thousand national applicants.
A number of media outlets provide rich educational opportunities for student development including, WEHC-FM, 90.7, the 9,000-watt college & community station; EHC-TV, departmental studio televised on Comcast cable; The Whitetopper, student newspaper; The Sphinx, student yearbook; and EHCWired.com, departmental news web site. Many of our students also find media-related work experience off campus. While one internship is required for the mass communications degree, some of our majors work in a variety of professional settings before they graduate.
