Investigative Reporting in U.S. Latino Communities

Course Details

The financial and time constraints the news business faces today have made investigative reporting almost non-existent in the U.S. Spanish-language media. At the same time, there is almost no investigative reporting about Latino topics or communities by English-language media.

This course will equip students with the tools and skills necessary to produce hard-hitting investigative pieces addressing the information needs of Latinos in the country.

This course is taught in Spanish and assignments produced in Spanish.
