Courses in Documentary Studies

A Doc 251 (= A His 251) Introduction to Documentary Studies (3)

The course will be offered every fall and by rotating faculty from Journalism, History, and Communication. A single faculty member will coordinate the course, but CAS faculty from the five documentary areas will be invited in as guest lecturers to introduce students to the five major documentary forms: nonfiction and long-form journalistic writing, photography, film and video, radio/audio, and multimedia/hypermedia. All students majoring in documentary studies must take this “gateway” introduction to the theory and history of documentary production.
