Preparation for Careers in Journalism

Emmanuel Morgan ’19, a reporter for The New York Times, has always had a knack for storytelling. Investigating important issues that inform, educate and empower the public comes naturally to the former Elon journalism major.

At Elon, Morgan displayed a tenacious work ethic, serving as a consistent presence in student media while completing internships with the Charlotte Observer, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and News21. But he credits Elon’s journalism faculty for serving as a driving force in his career.

“The mentoring my professors gave me, as well as the real-world experience I received from my internships and extracurriculars, helped prepare me for the rigors and demands of being a professional,” Morgan said. “It’s something I can look back on and say that I was well-trained and confident to contribute to each organization I worked for after Elon.”
