The screenwriting major builds creative skills, offers critical perspectives, and provides practical preparation necessary to engage in screenwriting at a professional level. The curriculum blends artistic growth with professional development. Each student graduates with a market ready feature length screenplay representing a significant creative achievement and a professional building block.
An internship helps bridge the gap from college to career – no matter what field one may chooses to pursue. Students are prepared for graduate school in screenwriting and related fields. A bachelor of arts in screenwriting is a foundation for the future.
