Writing for the Screen

Our MFA program in writing for the screen trains students to master the art and craft of telling stories for screens of all sizes, using long-form storytelling as a basis for instruction. You’ll take core classes with experienced faculty who will help you discover and develop your voice, side by side with supportive classmates. And you’ll craft a portfolio of work that demonstrates your talent and vision as a screenwriter, including three feature-length screenplays, one episodic teleplay, and at least one original pilot for television.
