Northeastern University School of Journalism has been a leader in investigative journalism since 2007 when The Boston Globe “Spotlight” Investigative Reporter Walter “Robby” Robinson joined our school as a Distinguished Professor and pioneered student-centered investigations. In 2014, FOX25 Investigative Reporter Mike Beaudet joined our faculty as a Professor of Practice. Beaudet now is an Investigative Reporter at Boston’s WCVB News. Under his direction, students work with renowned media partners like The Boston Globe, WCVB-TV and WGBH to help choose targets of investigation, crunch the data, and come through records and work side-by-side with professional journalists to create high-impact stories that appear on TV, radio and in print. Last year, these stories helped spark a reform of Massachusetts public records law and led to students winning student and professional Emmy awards, as well as being part of a Boston Globe submission that won a Scripps Howard award for investigative reporting. Imagine how impressive that will look on your resume. Investigative and Advanced Reporting is open to graduate and undergraduate students.
