Telling stories that matter
In the interdisciplinary Reporting & Documentary Storytelling Minor, students study the practice and theory of telling socially and culturally engaged stories in print journalism and nonfiction writing, video, image, audio, and mixed media formats. Students in the minor also explore ideas, issues, problems, and theories related to media, journalism, and nonfiction storytelling, developing vital skills in media literacy, critical thinking, ethical awareness, creativity, and problem solving.
Reporting & Media Internships:
Hands on experience in storytelling is core to Reporting & Documentary Storytelling.
Students do internships for credit and for pay, in media companies, non-profits, businesses and educational institutions. Telling stories is what makes us human. RDS helps students find these experencies and encourages you to seek out opportunities using your own connections and passions.
Mudseason covers issues and stories about the state of Vermont, or produced by scholars based in Vermont. Episodes are created and produced by a group of student interns, so you'll hear a new voice each time.
