In-Depth Documentary Training from Day One
NYU’s News and Documentary (NewsDoc) program at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute is for the curious, the natural observers who strive to dig deep and tell the unexplored stories of the world. Here, they learn in-depth writing, reporting, filmmaking, and editing techniques from day one, work with professional documentary makers in the business, and graduate ready to take on positions in news and documentary organizations or as independent filmmakers.
A NewsDoc education builds on a strong reporting foundation with training in the tools and techniques that transform students into reporters and producers of both long- and short-form journalism. Here, you’ll work with a broad range of faculty who are award-winning reporters, and filmmakers, and you’ll gain exposure to the best documentary makers in the business in our Master Class series.
