The program focuses on four critical areas: studies screenwriting production management/producing Students learn from those who came before them, practice the art of storytelling through their writing courses, and apply what they have learned in their production courses. Curriculum Students may begin taking courses in the Department­â€¯of Film & Television as early as their freshman year, upon successfully completing COM CO 101 The World of Communication (with a C or higher). Film and Television students do not have to take the secondary introductory COM course, COM CO 201, and can move directly on to take COM FT 201.
