Many college students decide to pursue a master’s degree after receiving their undergraduate degree. A master’s both enhances students’ understanding of the chosen discipline and expands their expertise in the field. Those who want to delve deeper into a profession may want to consider a master’s degree.

What is a Master in Investigative Journalism? A program like this focuses on building an aspiring reporter’s understanding of how to better manage the investigation of a complicated news story. Beyond collecting and scrutinizing leads, interviews and information, the program can also introduce students to burgeoning investigative techniques, including technology, such as drones, and ways to tell a story, including podcasts and digital media.

Graduates generally leave the program with strong research skills. They should have a better understanding of how to report the news, including new media, and what media best fits a particular news story. They can also develop production skills, applicable to broadcast and digital journalism, allowing them to work behind the camera.

Compare schools when looking for the right college. Where a student decides to study has the greatest impact on tuition costs. Public and private schools can differ greatly. The time to complete the coursework can vary as well. A part-time student may take more time than a full-time student. In general, most master’s degree programs take two years or so to finish.

Graduates may find work in broadcast, print and digital media. Popular professional titles include editor, reporter and producer. Some investigative journalists go on to anchor national and local news at broadcast and cable stations. Others can turn their skills to documentary filmmaking and producing, becoming directors or screenwriters. Some may even become content marketers at businesses, using their skills to tell stories about the business.
