Investigative Journalism: Data-driven Reporting

Neil Bedi

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

The next generation of investigative journalists needs to know how to report with data. Virtually every news beat now has publicly available datasets containing troves of information, and the new bar for high-end investigations requires thorough, quantified reporting. This seminar centers around building investigations with an eye for data-driven accountability stories. Students will learn how to approach data reporting, even without technical expertise. You will develop the ability to acquire, vet and analyze data; identify patterns and explain investigative findings; and present data reporting through written, visual and interactive media.

If the course fills, you may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at mbresnen@princeton.edu to be put on a waitlist. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
