Media and Education

Our certificate program in media and education helps educators master media and storytelling.

This certificate program is designed for educators who want to learn more about visual storytelling—including video, film, television, radio, music and the nearly infinite incarnations of these forms of online media—in order to make visual stories for teaching impact and to help students tell their own stories. The program also features a signature critical thinking unit on how to understand, analyze, present and reinvent media with educational purpose and impact.

Students in the program will expand their visual storytelling skills in order to find their expressive voice and style and better help their students with issues and ideas they care about. Because assumptions about education, identity and difference are always visible in the media-making process, the program will also work with students on the assumptions they bring to the stories they tell.

See the 2019-2020 media and education CAS program course list for more information.
