Students who elect to pursue the screenwriting specialization will learn the key elements of creating scripts for film and serial media (TV, webisodes, mobisodes). Starting with the fundamentals, students will focus on story structure, scene development, characterization and dialogue. As students advance through the program, they will begin to hone their voices through a series of writing assignments designed to guide them toward mastering the basics of narrative storytelling.
To complete the learning experience, all students pursuing the screenwriting specialization are expected to compile a portfolio.
Students must maintain a 2.4 GPA or higher with a minimum grade of C- in all courses counted toward fulfilling the film major or minor requirements.
