Throughout the year, CDS offers continuing education courses in the documentary arts for the general public. These courses, taught by working professionals, are designed to help students of all ages and backgrounds gain the skills they need to explore doing documentary work on their own terms. Over the past eleven years, students in the certificate program have produced photography, film and video, audio, multimedia, and writing projects on a diverse range of topics. These projects often move out into the world to larger audiences in the form of exhibits, installations, websites, and other creative artworks. This event showcases the latest of these final certificate projects, completed in the Final Seminar in Documentary Studies, taught this spring by Nancy Kalow.

The Spring 2010 graduating students and their projects are:
