About the Course:

This course is recommended for continuing reporters at The Daily Californian but is open to interested students outside the Daily Cal as well. A resume and 2-3 news clips should be sent to by Friday, Feb. 5.

A different part of investigative reporting will be covered in class each week, drawing on the knowledge of local media professionals. We will invite representatives from the Center for Investigative Reporting, professors from the Graduate School of Journalism and local journalists. Students will discuss how to obtain public documents and use archives. Students will also learn advanced multimedia techniques.

The course will be taught as a seminar, encouraging group discussion and feedback on the progress of investigative projects. Throughout the semester students will work to create three in-depth articles and supporting multimedia elements, to be printed in the paper. These packages will demonstrate considerable knowledge of the issue investigated and show advanced reporting skills.

The course will be facilitated by Keena Batti and Erika Oblea, former beat reporters at The Daily Californian.


How to Enroll:

Enrollment will be restricted by Course Entry Codes. Beat reporters at the Daily Cal will receive these codes prior to the first day of class. Other students who have submitted clips to and have been accepted into the course will receive a CEC through e-mail. 

The first day of class is TBD.
