Public Interest Journalism is about delivering powerful stories that have an impact on society, with the sole objective of exposing the truth – think Panama Papers.

Predominantly used to expose abuse of power in government, corporate corruption and social injustices, it’s an integral form of communication that relays uncomfortable yet vital truths to the public, while putting pressure on those in power.  You will work with world-renowned, award-winning investigative journalist, Janet Anderson and other leading journalists in their fields, to hone your skills in:

  • Efficient and accurate research
  • Identifying issues of governance 
  • Establishing misuse of power 
  • Story structure and writing
