Northwestern University - MFA in Documentary Media


Northwestern's MFA in Documentary Media program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to create compelling media using documentary methods. As the line between narrative fiction and nonfiction continues to blur, this program aims to be expansive, encouraging hybridization and connectivity across disciplines, formats, and genres.

Involvement in film

Northwestern offers film production, writing, and studies degrees. The Hollywood Reporter consistently ranks NU as one of the top film programs in the country. Film practitioners from around the world speak and present new work annually on campus. NU also has supported filmmakers as visiting artists-in-residence and lecturers.
