PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pace University media and communication arts students will have the opportunity to produce a special documentary in Curaçao during their spring break in March through a course offered at the university called "Producing the Documentary."
"Producing The Documentary" exposes students to environmental issues and allows them to gain filmmaking and production experience.
Maria Luskay, Dyson professor and program director for the master's degree in media and communication arts program has teamed up with The New York Times “Dot Earth” blogger and Pace Academy Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding Andrew Revkin to make the course possible for students.
This year, Luskay and Revkin will be working diligently with students at the Carmabi Research Institute where marine scientists are monitoring the island's surrounding coral reefs and working with local communities to preserve this important ocean addition.
