We’ll talk about details of the trip and how you can start the application process. The five-week, six-credit course  will take a team of students and faculty to shoot and edit a short documentary as well as write and produce other multimedia content. The collaboration between the Theology and Journalism, Media and Computing departments  also includes a theology component on the role of the church in Alaska. The  course will begin in late May. It starts with a video/writing bootcamp and includes about two weeks in Bethel, Alaska. We return to put together a rough cut of the film and wrap up the course.

Creighton students receive six hours of credit, one a 300-level theology class and a certified writing feature writing class.

For more details, come to the meeting. If you can’t make it, please or if you’re interested in the experience.
