This course gives students an opportunity to explore personal, cultural and community immigration stories about the people in New York State. Students research, write, and create reports with video, audio and photography to produce work for digital and broadcast platforms. This new intensive course is a partnership between MCA and The National Park Service at Ellis Island and offers a chance to produce professional level work. Pre-requisites should include an academic course in at least one of the following disciplines: journalism, writing, video, photography, TV and radio or podcast production. Professors with expertise in video, broadcast and digital journalism will co-teach the class with visits to Ellis Island for lectures and use of the archives.
