The four-year screenwriting degree focuses on developing knowledge of genres, practical application, and publishing work, while building platforms, networks, and learning the skills every artist-entrepreneur needs to build their business and brand. You will learn not only the craft of writing, but also learn to master tools and techniques to build a career as a writer.
Start your first year with a foundation in all forms of creative writing. The second year introduces you to the history and analysis of Children’s Literature with a focus on the craft of writing, illustration, and fairy tales. During the second and third year, you will study tools of storytelling, story structure, dramatic scenes and character interaction, and dialogue. Moving into the third year, you will focus on Middle Grade and Young Adult Fiction. And finally, in the fourth year, you will write and refine a manuscript or book series proposal, and begin querying agents.
