About Investigative Journalism at City, University of London

On this course you will learn how to investigate, how to communicate across a range of platforms - digital, audio-visual and text, and how to work ethically and legally. You will quickly progress from learning the basics of writing, whether a text-based news report or for broadcast, to producing radio and TV, and laying out text.

You will learn how to investigate using open and closed sources, and will be taught a variety of skills such as interviewing techniques, how to use access to information laws, and the basics of ethical undercover work. At the end of the year, you will be expected to produce a piece of investigative work of your own, of professional quality.

The course is taught by experienced professionals. Teaching is led by course director Dr Richard Danbury, who spent about a decade at the BBC, and Jenna Corderoy, whose work has been long-listed for the Orwell Prize (and is an alumna of the course). They will be joined by a wide range of investigative reporters and editors.
