CRW 201 SCREENWRITING: INTRODUCTORY-This introductory course explores the screenwriting genre as it applies to a visual medium.  Students will engage in writing exercises to learn the elements of story, character development, structure, scene study and dialogue.  Students will also analyze professional screenplays, learn to pitch and write their own short film script. No prerequisite.

CRW 401 SCREENWRITING: ADVANCED-Writers need deadlines.  I personally know this to be true.  This course will require that you write a complete feature screenplay.  This process will be facilitated by lectures, in class assignments, and small and large group workshops.  You will pitch ideas, break your story into a beat sheet, get immersed in character development and finally write a feature screenplay.  In addition, we'll have discussions about working in the Hollywood "industry" and you will learn to write script coverage.

Prerequisite: CRW 301

CRW 395 ST: NORWEGIAN LITERATURE FROM TROLLS TO THOR, IBSEN & NOIR-This Q4 study abroad course offers students an enchanted opportunity to visit Norway and Iceland and study a literary history of Norwegian authors beginning with Norse mythology and folklore and moving to Ibsen, the father of modern realism and concluding with the recent noir fiction blockbusters of Jo Nesbo. The course begins on campus after spring break and in mid-May, students fly to Oslo, to walk the streets of Harry Holes, explore Ibsen’s home, peer into the Viking ships and enjoy an Oslo Opera House performance. Leaving Oslo, we’ll hop on "one of the best train rides in the world" (Lonely Planet) followed by a cruise through the Sognefjorden, the longest fjord in Norway. In Bergen, we’ll look for trolls, climb Floiban and tour Edvard Grieg's Troldhaugen. A dip in Iceland's Blue Lagoon wraps up this incredible adventure to Scandinavia.
