Introduction

Social Documentation Program (SocDoc) is a one-of-a-kind program designed for future documentarians committed to social change and documenting communities, cultures, issues, and marginalized individuals in our current landscape of representation. SocDoc goes beyond the story. That's our motto and our practice: to go beyond story-telling into the intimacy of people's lives, the causes underlying social injustice, the issues too pressing to ignore. There's a story, too, but we think that should be the beginning, not the end, of the matter.

Founded in 2005, SocDoc has a contemporary view of a documentary that sets it apart from traditional approaches. Students considering enrollment should have a clear idea of a project, a commitment to social justice and human rights, and a desire to study their subject areas in depth. We prepare graduates for careers in independent media, documentary, human rights work, and creative contributions to various fields.
