About the Center for Documentary Production and Study

Stemming from the success with the student documentary, "America Talks," Robert Morris University is expanding its applied research and outreach programs by opening the Center for Documentary Production and Study. The Center is the third applied research center at Robert Morris.

The Documentary Center is dedicated to the advancement of documentary work completed on video, film, and digital media. The Center will encourage and oversee student-produced documentary productions, provide screenings of well-known documentaries, become a link among professionals, encourage research, and contribute to the understanding of the history and role of documentary production in society. In addition, the Center will draw upon Robert Morris University's strengths in business and communications by making available to students the expertise in business, graphics, and web design. The Center opened June 1, 2002 and is headquartered in the Academic Media Center at Robert Morris University's Moon Township campus.

Our vision for the future includes assisting the communications department in developing course work and certificate programs in documentary studies, establishing a visiting professor program and links with other colleges and universities.
