LVAIC to Introduce Collaborative Minor
September 30, 2016, @ 8:00 AM
New this academic year, LVAIC is introducing a collaborative minor for member campus students in Documentary Storymaking. Completion of the Minor in Documentary Storymaking includes three required courses; a minimum of two electives, selected from a range of courses offered by a number of departments and programs at Lafayette, Lehigh, and Muhlenberg; and a final documentary project completed within the Capstone (one of the three required courses).
The required Introduction to Documentary Storymaking will be taught each fall. The second course in the minor, Legal and Ethical Issues in Documentary Storymaking, will be offered online each spring. The Capstone in Documentary Storymaking, involving directed community-based work toward completion of a final documentary project, will be taught each spring. Students must also complete 2 electives, one of which must be a course that emphasizes documentary production in any media type.
Upon completion of these requirements, student work in the minor is recognized on their transcripts issued by home campus registrars upon completion of the degree. Courses in the minor are open to all LVAIC students, but only students enrolled at a LVAIC institution that has approved the minor in Documentary Storymaking are eligible for award of the minor. Students interested in pursuing this minor can register for the required courses via the LVAIC cross registration system available here.
