Investigative Journalism: Deeper Reporting Off Breaking News

James Martinez

Back to "Spring 2021" courses

The news cycle is moving faster than ever and the next generation of journalists must be prepared to keep up. This course will reveal the techniques of brainstorming and executing quick-hit investigations off major breaking news, projects that can be completed within days and take advantage of a tuned-in audience before it moves on. Students will learn how to craft tightly focused angles aimed at answering the most pressing questions, how to quickly get at the documents and real people that give such stories their investigative edge, and how to pull together findings in an ethical and compelling way, with impact and style.

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.
