MIT Offers Documentary Photography and Photojournalism Course for Free Online

It’s not unusual for colleges with large open-source programs to put out a number of courses free for the world to browse through online. In the past we’ve featured courses from both MITand Stanford.

Today, we have a new course from MIT. Taught in the Spring semester of 2009, this course came a full two years later than the original MIT course we shared and is packed full of useful information for anybody interested in photojournalism.

Published through MIT’s Open Courseware project, Prof. B. D. Colen’s Documentary Photography and Photojournalism: Still Images of a World in Motion course gives you a chance to benefit from a photography course given at the storied Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

With syllabus, readings, assignments, image gallery and course material downloads available, the class has everything you need to walk yourself through the world of documentary photography and photojournalism one step at a time.

Last week, the NYPD shuttered the controversial unit.
