One of the featured course offerings for the fall is a seminar on how to write a screenplay. The course is conducted in Spanish and is especially attractive for students with an interest in DRGFF and cinema, especially in Latin America.
Students that need extra reinforcement in the Spanish language can also choose to take a specialized intermediate course to give their language skills an extra boost.
