Advanced Health and Sciences Reporting

Advanced Heath and Sciences Reporting Seminar builds on specialization skills you developed in the newsroom and during your Health and Science Seminar. Now, you take it all to the next level with advanced reporting strategies you will learn to apply as we meet as a class with renowned scientists, science reporters and other experts.

At the heart of Advanced Reporting, you identify two or three high-impact stories of your choice that you produce with a deep dive into field reporting, finding stories in data and diverse research. The hunt is always on for great stories in this class. Class workshops provide access to tools for planning and sourcing experiential stories, utilizing investigative strategies, tackling data and data visualizations, and reporting with a mix of text and multimedia options. You leverage your skills and learn new skills to stretch storytelling boundaries for innovative reporting. We publish on the Medill Reports website but you also learn to pitch your stories and seek other opportunities to publish them.
