Interdisciplinary Minors


The Interdisciplinary Minor in Playwriting is designed to give students in Theater, Fiction Writing, and other fields represented at Columbia College a comprehensive and coherent opportunity to broaden their skills in writing for the stage and media performance modes. Students in this program will develop the requisite skills for both long and short forms of stage writing, for adaptation of fictional works to script forms, and for monologues for solo performers. The range of writing experiences will enhance the students' professional marketability in the related fields of stage and media advertising, public relations, and other fields where creative problem solving and script forms come into play.
