COMM 437A, Advanced Documentary Filmmaking Abroad, is by definition a course whose goal is to demonstrate an understanding of the diversity of peoples and cultures through the interaction and filming of short documentary films. We ask our students to think critically, creatively, and independently about the topics that they choose to research and explore. A grounding in ethical professional practice and a sharp sensitivity to the social responsibility borne by communications professionals is more than just a required core competency for students in the College of Communications--it is the College's Strategic Goal I.
The College would like to have each student exposed, at the start of his or her academic career, to at least an introduction to the nature of his or her social role as communications professionals, and the public responsibility and challenges that come with that role.
