COM 155: Scriptwriting for Broadcast Arts

Scriptwriting for Broadcast Arts is designed to give students practical experience in writing styles for the various media of the broadcast industry. Through hands-on exercises and projects, students will become familiar with various writing techniques, develop broadcast writing skills and apply those skills to the creation of news stories, interviews, narration, pitches, feature writing, public service announcements and commercials. Students will also be exposed to current trends in the industry and given the opportunity to critique those trends and theorize about upcoming styles.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”
