The New England Center for Investigative Reporting at Boston University offers training programs focusing on the next generation of investigative reporters: summer workshops for high school students, Boston University courses and internships for college students, exchange programs for international students, and weekend bootcamps for early and mid-career journalists.
For High School Students
The New England center for Investigative Reporting offers pre-college summer programs on the campuses of both Boston University and Boston College.
The Boston University Summer Journalism Institute provides high school students a two-week opportunity to expand their journalism skills, experience college life and explore Boston. Students report and write stories on a wide variety of topics — government, sports, the arts, business and more.
The Investigative Reporting Workshop at Boston College provides high school students a three-week opportunity to explore more deeply a single theme and learn investigative reporting techniques.
For College Students
The Investigative Internship at NECIR seeks reporters at the beginning of their career for the summer, fall and winter semesters.
Interns receive hands-on experience working alongside NECIR staff reporters for possible distribution through our media partners including The Boston Globe, WGBH and other New England outlets.
Beginning in January, NECIR also leads the Investigative Reporting Clinic, a course offered for Boston University undergraduate and graduate students through the College of Communication.
