MDOCS is many things: a creative community, a collaborative production entity, a programmer, presenter, and funder of nonfiction. But firstly, it’s an interdisciplinary academic program that offers courses in documentary studies and practice at Skidmore College.

Our curriculum is designed to dovetail with existing academic programs on campus. Neither a major nor a minor, our courses usually welcome those from all disciplines and class years (although all our courses count towards Skidmore’s Media and Film Studies minor LINK). Introductory courses in various documentary mediums (film, video, audio, photo, installation and more) are led by Skidmore faculty, many of whom lead parallel lives as professional documentary practitioners. For students who continue building their skills and portfolio in self-driven or course-related projects, MDOCS also offers independent studies, master classes and workshops. Community members with clearly-articulated projects-in-process are invited to audit a Documentary Studies course (with program and instructor permission).
