The New School confers the Certificate in Documentary Media Studies for completion of a one-year, full-time, graduate-level program in documentary history, theory, and practice. Over the course of the year, you produce, direct, and edit an original short documentary video project on a subject found in or near New York City. The program is a wonderful opportunity to study the documentary genre as both an artistic and a social practice in the world center of documentary media production.
The curriculum prepares you for a professional career in documentary media as a media director/producer or as a project manager or curator for documentary television, theatrical distribution, film festivals, film magazines, and museums.
