The 15-credit screenwriting/dramatic writing minor is designed for students interested in studying the art and craft of writing for the screen and/or stage. The rationale for the proposed required courses for this minor is that knowledge of all forms of creative and dramatic writing contribute to each other and are necessary for a student to become a well-rounded writer no matter what the format.
