JOU4200 Investigative Reporting

Course Description

Journalism is often considered the Fourth Estate, because of its role keeping our nation’s other three branches of government honest, seeking transparency, and bringing to light breaches of the public trust. However, this zealous mission to protect democracy must be balanced with an understanding of the legal issues connected to investigative reporting, as well as the benefits and pitfalls of new media on investigative reporting. In this course, students will learn how to conduct themselves on the scene, how to gather information, conduct research, approach government agencies, and write hard hitting journalistic pieces.
