Do you have an interest in a strong investigative-watchdog focus that emphasizes the use of data analysis in reporting? The Missouri School of Journalism has a long-standing practice in investigative journalism. Students with this interest are encouraged to develop a specialty area, such as covering health care or religion as well as to take basic courses in other subject areas that will give them important skills, such as introductory accounting (though again, this is not required).

Students will graduate with career-ready skills to work in computer-assisted reporting or investigative reporting.
