The Documentary Studies Certificate program provides students with the knowledge and skills to produce their own video and audio documentaries. Students creatively express the knowledge gained in their academic major to a broader audience through community-based research using video and audio recording, oral history, and other documentary fieldwork methods.
Certificate students work in one of two documentary mediums—video filmmaking or audio documentary for radio and the Internet—to tell the stories of communities, organizations and people in the Monadnock region of southwestern New Hampshire.
