SOC alum Megan Ackerman played a key role in the documentary The Invisible War, which received a Oscar nomination.

SOC’s Discover the World of Communication program teaches students to build a digital portfolio, script, shoot and edit a film, write a news story like a pro, speak with confidence, persuade, inform, educate and entertain. The professional, hands-on workshops- open to students entering grades 9 through 12- are taught by American University School of Communication faculty and communication professionals.
Help document stories from "Freedom Summer" of 1964. In collaboration with Smithsonian's Museum of American History, Professor Nina Shapiro-Perl's Community Documentary students will learn digital storytelling by capturing experiences of civil right activists - then and now.
