Minor in Screenwriting

The minor in screenwriting is intended to guide the student from the acquisition of basic screenwriting skills through the completion of a full-length feature screenplay. Fifteen of the credits are directly craft-oriented, teaching the student what she needs to know to translate her ideas into a format suitable for production; the other nine credits are dedicated to background knowledge intended to inform her creative thinking.  

Film & video majors should note that they will be taking half of the courses in the screenwriting minor as part of their degree requirements, making this minor a relatively simple addition to their education.
