Why study Screenwriting?

All students will begin with a solid foundation of introductory level screenwriting skills as well as key components of strong storytelling. As they move through the certificate, they will be able to decide if they want to focus more on
feature film writing or television writing as elective options are created and added to the certificate as the Digital Media Collaborative continues to grow. Students will also have a solid understanding of the business side of screenwriting in order to best be able to market their artistic work.

Admission Requirements
