O que eu aprenderei?

The need for investigative journalism has never been greater. Globalization has placed extraordinary pressures on human societies, posing unprecedented threats from polluting industries, transnational crime networks, rogue states, and the actions of powerful figures in business and government. Journalists, the watchdogs of democracy, cannot anymore be limited to national borders but are now forced to extend investigations internationally.

This development raises demands for new understanding among journalists of how conditions for investigative reporting differ between countries; regarding regulations, risks and the nature of corruption at all levels of society. It furthermore demands new journalistic methods, techniques and transnational collaborations. The Master's program in Investigative Journalism (MIJ) at JMG offers insight into these techniques, as well as comprehension of investigative journalism as a democratic phenomenon. The program provides knowledge and skills in investigative journalism in digital environments, with specialization in international perspectives, data journalism and digital publishing.

The program is well established in the journalistic profession and the news industry, and developed in consultation with them. The goal is to prepare students for a changing news business through the optimization of knowledge and skills that are essential in this turbulent market: data-driven journalism and visualization, project management, entrepreneurship, cross-sectional partnerships – but also the manifestation of fundamental journalistic values ​​in the form of investigative journalism. This means the skills to monitor global and transnational institutions, business, politics, organizations and agents (corruption, war on terror, development, climate change and much more).

Although the program is aimed at those looking to improve their journalistic skills, it could also be useful for campaigners, activists, charities and anyone with an interest in holding the powerful to account.

The program consists of four compulsory courses of 15 credits. They are all campus-based and built on the student’s active involvement.
