This guide highlights relevant library resources for the courses taught in the Film & Media Studies department.


Students will learn how to write for TV using professional standards. We will use the show Breaking Bad, considered by many to be the best-produced show in history, as a case study, in order to explore writing, acting, directing, graphics, music composing, cinematography, editing, and other arts/crafts that contribute to a successful show, as well as the architecture of the script: teasers, act breaks, etc.
