SUNY Old Westbury has been a pioneer among colleges and universities in the United States in offering a course in Investigative Reporting. Old Westbury began a course in Investigative Reporting in the early 1970s -- just as the term investigative reporting came into use, succeeding the title muckraking. This journalistic specialty, which involves exposing "how things really work" and seeking a resolution of societal problems through journalistic exposure, has been considered an extension in journalism of the College at Old Westbury's mission of seeking social justice.
