About

Are you a campaigner or activist who wants to hold the powerful to account? Do you work for an NGO or charity and want to harness the potential of modern media for your cause? The Investigative Journalism programme is offered by University of Gothenburg.

Overview

The one-year master’s programme in Investigative Journalism provides a rich understanding of investigative journalism as a democratic phenomenon, plus the skills to conceive, design, conduct, deliver, and publish effective journalistic investigations in today’s digital media environments.  The Investigative Journalism programme is offered by University of Gothenburg.

As a student of the programme, you will sharpen and expand your journalistic skills and develop the tools and understanding to use the potential of modern media to hold the powerful to account.

The goal is to prepare you for a changing news business through optimizing knowledge and skills that are essential in this turbulent market (data-driven journalism and visualization, project management, entrepreneurship, cross-sectional partnerships) but also fundamental journalistic values and ethics.
