BS in Communications Media: Emphasis - Screenwriting
John Paul the Great Catholic University prepares students professionally and spiritually for careers in the diverse, yet complementary fields of entertainment media and business. It provides an academically rigorous, yet practical environment for students called to impact culture for Christ.
Screenwriting as an academic field encompasses the visual tools of storytelling, developing stories from characters, the skills necessary to write a compelling visual story for film, TV and the web. Also covered are financial, legal and labor issues.
Students learn to passionately pursue new and innovative story ideas, to defy conventional wisdom, and to dare mighty things. Students can expect a "transforming" experience, acquiring self-confidence, knowledge, and the tools they will need to write their own future, and likely in a production partnership with peers from JP Catholic.
Graduates will expect to pursue careers in writing for theatre, television, film, industrial media, and more.
Industry-experienced faculty bring a unique blend of entrepreneurial spirit underpinned by a serious focus on forming students to thrive within the increasingly competitive global entertainment marketplace.
