The Knight Center for Environmental Journalism trains student and professional journalists
Michigan State University’s Knight Center for Environmental Journalism teaches student and professional journalists how to better report on the world’s most important beat. The East Lansing, Mich., center was founded in 1994 when the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation created the nation’s first endowed chair in environmental journalism.
The program serves undergraduate and graduate students and professional reporters with specialized training. Students learn from environmental experts and journalists and can report for professional award-winning publications and broadcast outlets.
Under the guidance of expert faculty they experiment with new ways of explaining complex environmental issues while maintaining traditional values of fairness and accuracy.
