Screenwriting for Television and Film

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Our graduate certificate program provides training in drama and visual storytelling, character and plot development, genre and adaptation, and an understanding of the craft of writing for both television and film. Using the industry-standard model of “workshopping” script pages, students learn from one another as well as their instructors as they work to develop, hone and polish at least one script. Every student in the program both gives and receives critical input on style, writing structure and technique, and story line. The graduate certificate is recognized within the television and film industries as an indication of mastery in the field specified by the certificate, above and beyond typical academic degrees. This program can be completed 50% online.
