A concentration in Journalism teaches you the power and possibilities of the word. It provides you with the capacity to report the news truthfully, and it demands that you develop a high degree of sensitivity to the cultural and political facets of the world. Expect to research deeply, interview perceptively, and write on deadline. Expect to learn how to tell stories well. You’ll get practice in crafting, regardless of the form that your work takes: blog, broadcast, or book.

Because students become fluent with the multiple social, political, and religious perspectives offered by Multi-Ethnic, International, American, and European writing, they are able to appreciate and work with a diversity of individuals.

Explore the Pre-Physical Therapy Track

We, at Eastern University intentionally do not have a formal “Pre-Physical Therapy” major.

A degree in “pre- physical therapy” or “allied health” limits the scope of what one can do upon graduation.
