Multi-Media Storytelling

Multimedia Storytelling is a required production course offered to Media Studies majors, minors and other students enrolled in the University. In this dynamic, multimedia production class, students will learn to tell stories across a variety of digital media platforms. Students will craft unique, interactive stories in video, audio, and the written word. Students will then learn how to distribute those stories using tools like instagram, WordPress, and Soundcloud to help disseminate their pieces. The focus will be for students to give voice to underreported people and places, and to explore the social, political and cultural issues of our times thru media. Regardless of the medium used - video, audio, or print – quality storytelling is a critical element necessary to engage and influence audiences. This is a foundational course for all Media Studies majors, who will leave this course with a thorough understanding of the practical and theoretical skills of storytelling.
