Professional Writing students will tailor their degree to gain a high degree of specific, marketable technical expertise.
Your specialization will allow you to explore your interests through a diverse set of electives while still working within a career-focused curriculum. Your specialization can be supplemented with other Professional Writing electives and/or a minor. Your faculty advisor in the Division of Communication & Creative Media will help you map out the best academic path to reach your desired career and/or graduate studies goals.
There is an optional concentrated area of focus in Screenwriting, which is available for Professional Writing majors to include as complementary study to their required specialization. In the Screenwriting specialization, you will dive deeply into the techniques, practices and specific knowledge base of screenwriting professionals. Your faculty advisor will advise you about the possibility of adding this optional specialization as it relates to your overall graduation requirements and professional goals.
