Taught By: Anthony Cormier
Section: AX

CRN: 15666

Credits: 4

Students will gain not only an understanding of the traditions and practice of investigative journalism through close study of published works (across a broad range of media), but acquire basic investigative skills in project-based learning. Case studies will focus on: race; the criminal justice system; sexual violence; politics (old-school fraud as well as the novel efforts to undermine civic participation). Working collaboratively, students will tackle real-life investigations: to brainstorm, strategize, chart lines of inquiry and learn investigative reporting techniques. The course builds on data, design, and reporting/research skills, but students will also gain exposure to the cutting-edge investigative tactics used by prominent news outlets in New York City—as well as a range of others, from state and county agencies to private investigators.
