LMU's screenwriting major helps students understand that all great movies and television shows begin with a story served by the written word. The mission of LMU's School of Film and Television Screenwriting program is to provide the best possible education in the art and craft of creating such stories. Screenwriting majors gain a solid foundation in the liberal arts, taking classes in the University core to deepen their capacity to communicate to audiences while working on more specific coursework that delves deeper into their imaginations and personal lives to come up with stories that will entertain, amuse, uplift, and challenge audiences.
