Radio Documentary

This course teaches the art and techniques of documentary journalism. Student reporters explore documentary storytelling through the use of strong writing, compelling characters, sound, scene and narrative. At its best, radio combines the power and immediacy of great documentary films with the intimacy and poetry of a New Yorker-style magazine piece.
