The Jack Newfield class, Urban Investigative Reporting Fall 2013

Posted on 23. May, 2013 by in News

During a decades-long career, investigative reporter Jack Newfield exposed corrupt politicians, dangerous nursing homes, dirty boxing promoters and other scourges upon the city. Now, in a course offered in Newfield’s honor, students can learn step-by-step how investigative reporting is done: how stories are found, documents uncovered, sources developed, and more–all as they work as a team toward producing bylined work for publication in the professional press. Led by award-winning investigative reporter and editor Jarrett Murphy, the course will produce multi-media work and is open to both undergraduates and graduate students.
