The Center for Documentary Studies offers a wide range (up to a hundred annually) of onsite and online courses, summer intensive institutes, and short workshops for adults who are interested in doing their own documentary work, whether starting a first project or refining an existing one. Most classes are offered during in the evening or on weekends to accommodate the schedules of working adults. These hands-on courses, available via open admission and with reasonable fees, involve instruction in photography, video, audio, writing, and other creative media. Special topics integral to conducting and presenting documentary work are covered, such as documentary traditions, techniques, fieldwork theory, and ethics.
