Undergraduate Minor

Each student's minor program is prepared in consultation with the advisor of minors in the history department. Advanced placement credit may not be used for the minor program. 15 credits (at least 4 credits at 200 or 300 level) ; maximum of one course (4 credits) of transfer or cross-listed courses may count toward minor.

The Minor in Documentary Storymaking provides students with an opportunity to enhance their major academic work in a variety of fields with specialization in documentary perspectives and community-based practices. Whatever their academic interests, a foundation in the theory, ethics, and practice of documentary storymaking can serve as an integrating focal point for their studies.

The Minor requires a minimum of five courses. Of those five, three are required:
DOC 101 Introduction to Documentary Storymaking
DOC 201 Legal & Ethical Issues in Documentary Practice
DOC 370 Capstone in Documentary Storymaking
