Investigative Reporting

Course Details

This is an intensive capstone course that explores the advanced reporting, writing, organizational, analytical, and critical reasoning skills that are the foundation of investigative journalism for print and broadcast journalists. Using New York City as a laboratory, each student is assigned an investigative project. Some projects will require a team of two or three students. Every week students submit a detailed memo of progress. The goal: by the end of the semester each student or team will produce a 2,500 word investigative article or a 15-minute broadcast.
