Modules are structured learning experiences built around a series of 4-6 courses that focus on a subject and set of skills. Modules provide opportunities for students to focus on and master these specific skills, and to demonstrate proficiency through a capstone project – usually a portfolio of polished, professional-quality work.
Completing a module in the School of Communication is another way to lend focus and meaning to your undergraduate education and to emerge from Northwestern with marketable skills and a professional portfolio. The successful completion of a module could give you an edge when it comes to internships and job applications. As a member of a module, you will have closer access to faculty in your field, and you will join a communication of undergraduate peers that share your interests.
The modules offered in the Radio/Television/Film Department are:
- Acting for Screen
- Creative Writing for the Media
- Directing for the Screen
- Media Arts and Game Design
