This site documents work done by students who graduated between 1998 and 2011.  Columbia’s  Earth & Environmental Science Journalism program is not accepting new students at this time.

Here are some examples of work by graduates of the E&ESJ program. These examples were chosen because (a) they are accessible on the web, and (b) they demonstrate the range of kinds of work being done by E&ESJ graduates.

Special Media

Graphic displays of data and information are a critical piece of many publications. With publication space, and reader time in short supply, publications are finding that graphics and visual displays are an efficient way to convey complex ideas.

Multimedia journalism pieces have developed prominance as an extension of print journalism. Follow up investigation and in depth interviews to investigative pieces are often presented as video clips or narrated slide presentations.
