The Konrad Adenauer Center for Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila  University (CFJ) is now accepting students for the seven-week online course Investigative Reporting. The course, which is open primarily to journalists in Asia and the Pacific Islands, will roll out on November 17 but applications will be accepted up to Friday, October 17. 

The course will be taught by Marilou Mangahas, editor of the Manila  times from 1994 up to its closure in 1999. Mangahas was a Nieman Fellow  at Harvard University and co-founder of the Philippine Center for  Investigative Journalism (PCIJ). It will be Mangahas's second online course with CFJ.  She taught the course Newsroom Management last year. 

Investigative Reporting addresses journalists who want to hone their  skills in in-depth reporting. The course takes participants

through the  preparation of an investigative reporting plan, and moves on to examine  the philosophical, ethical and political issues raised by investigative reporting. Lectures and readings will be posted online and discussions will also take place through the Internet.

 Participants must be full-time members of a news organization with at least three years of journalism experience and have a good command of the English language. Qualified journalism teachers and other media professionals may also be accepted. 

 Fellowships covering tuition and other fees are offered to journalists.  Information about fellowship and admission requirements as well as the required forms may be found at the CFJ website, at

 Established in June 2000, the Konrad Adenauer Center for Journalism at the Ateneo offers online and on-campus courses aimed at promoting  excellence in journalism in Asia and the Pacific Islands.  Its online courses use the latest Internet technologies to create virtual classrooms that can reach journalists across the region.
