Class of 2017: Ready for the Next Step

Documentary Class Takes Students to Cuba
One way to learn about an unfamiliar place is to step behind the lens. That is exactly what CMU students did this semester to learn about Cuban artists.

The class was designed for students to discover the unknown and was also offered through the Interactive Design, Arts and Technology Network (IDeATe).
