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 330/CSS395/ENG 395 GRAPHIC NOVEL-This class will explore the Graphic Novel's place in the ever evolving American entertainment landscape. We will not only discuss this art form's ability to communicate stories of the most personal nature, but also as a launching point of entertainment franchises which inspire millions. Whether it is a story of high flying superheroes saving the world, a young girl's memoir detailing the loss of her father, or a frightening exploration of Gothic horror, we will discover all of these tales begin with a writer and artist working together to create new and exciting worlds of their own. Our readings will span multiple genres and attempt to expose students to the wide variety of storytelling possibilities the graphic novel presents.
