Documentary Journalism Workshop

Documentary Journalism Workshop

The Documentary Journalism Workshop is an upper-level (Junior-Senior) class wherein students are charged with producing a short-form documentary (5-15 minutes) from project conception to final production.  The projects are chosen by the students themselves.  In the past three years, projects from this class have been used as training/promotional videos, screened in film festivals, and won numerous awards!  To see the great work the students have done...check out the links below.
