MFA IN SCREENWRITING
The Master of Fine Arts is a highly selective two-year program designed to
cultivate the writer's voice through a demanding curriculum focused on the
craft of screenwriting that culminates in a comprehensive film and television
portfolio of original work. Additionally, writers are educated on the
business side of the entertainment industry and are guided through the
process of moving from student to professional writer.
All of the MFA Screenwriting: Writing for Film and Television courses are
offered in the evenings to allow working professionals to be able to attend
graduate school full-time while still maintaining their current careers. The
curriculum is designed to be completed in twenty-one months, but it can
also be done at a slower pace for those who are interesting in participating
part-time. MFA students have opportunites to defray the cost of earning
their degrees, through employment within the school itself, Graduate
Assistantships that offer course credit and a stipend, and competative
grants for producing thesis films.
