Journalism Professor Eileen McNamara Honored by Columbia Journalism School

September 20th, 2012

Brandeis’ Journalism Program proudly announces that Professor Eileen McNamara is being honored by the Columbia Journalism School as one of its “Great” alums. The honor is part of a year-long celebration of the Journalism School, which was founded by Joseph Pulitzer 100 years ago.

Professor McNamara, who earned her Masters in Journalism from Columbia in 1976, was honored specifically for her coverage of the clerical sex abuse scandal that first began rocking the Archdiocese of Boston more than a decade ago.

You can read an example of that coverage here:

Columbia will ultimately choose 100 stories from 100 alums to celebrate the school’s 100 anniversary. So far, it has released the names and work of the first 50 winners, and we here at Brandeis were delighted — but not at all surprised — to find Professor McNamara’s name in that group!
