Missouri Investigative Journalism Workshop

The Missouri School of Journalism launched a new summer workshop opportunity in 2018 with the Missouri Investigative Journalism Workshop.

Learn how investigative journalists find information, track people down, conduct better interviews, analyze data and find great stories. You’ll leave with skills you need to do your own investigations. The workshop is taught by investigative reporters who have worked at top news organizations such as The New York Times and by experienced MU faculty.

Highlights include:

  • How to use the web and social media to find information and background people.
  • How to conduct better interviews that get people talking to you.
  • How to analyze data to pull meaning from numbers and lists.
  • How to tell better stories.
  • How to find better story ideas.


  • When: June 25-30, 2022
  • Where: Missouri School of Journalism, Columbia, Mo.
  • Cost: $675. Includes workshop activities, on-campus lodging, meals and local transportation. Scholarships available.

Registration is now open. Learn more and register here.
