Toni Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism, US
The Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism is dedicated to training students for distinguished careers in investigative journalism. Candidates for the Columbia University’s Master of Science degree are able to pursue this specialization, which is platform-neutral and is taken in addition to the traditional M.S. curriculum. Stabile students are required to take skills classes and seminars in investigative reporting. They spend the year learning investigative methods and are required to do an investigative report for their Master’s Project. The Stabile Center provides support for their research and reporting, including paying for travel costs. Stipends are available to allow students to pursue their reporting projects after graduation.
