SPJ to host memorial service for fallen journalists


EKU's Society of Professional Journalists will host a memorial for the journalists who were killed on the job in 2018 in the Meditation Chapel at 9:30 a.m. April 16. 

The memorial will honor the 58 journalists killed around the world from 2018 to now that have a known motive for their deaths. 

SPJ would like to give students, faculty and staff the opportunity to honor these fallen journalists by reading their names during the memorial. To sign up to read one or more names, click here.

Welcome to the Department of Communication

Welcome to the Department of Communication at Eastern Kentucky University. We're happy you've chosen to visit our site. We hope you find it accessible and useful.

Our mission is to train you to be a journalist... a broadcaster... a public relations practitioner... or a Communication Studies specialist…And to help you make the leap in four years from student to media professional.

We believe communication education is like a balance bringing together theory and practice by employing mentoring, coaching and teaching. Our professors balance a foundation in the issues with an understanding of technology.

Our courses emphasize hands-on learning as well as models of instruction that teach students how to be successful media professionals, as well as how to recognize and adjust to the changing media environment of the 21st century.

We welcome you aboard.
