A good story leaves a lasting impression, and can even transform the way we view our own lives. Having the ability to write engaging characters, riveting plotlines, and believable worlds is one of the most creative skills we can have.

Screenwriting studies will teach you to create your own screenplays, from structure and formatting to tying elements of a story together and to understand your place in the film and game industry.
