When you become a part of our MFA Programs in Film and Television Writing, you join a community of world-class filmmakers: directors, television writers, screenwriters, and producers who gather together in a cutting edge/urban arts incubator.
Led by legendary producer, Artistic Director Christine Vachon of Killer Films and our stellar faculty, our mission is to train students in all forms of visual storytelling.
Our MFA in Television Writing is among the most comprehensive in the world. Students
will graduate with a portfolio of three original pilot scripts; they will also write,
direct and produce a micro pilot for an original web series. Additionally, students
will learn how to work in collaborative writers rooms with working showrunners to
break stories and build season arcs on both open-ended and limited series. Upon graduation,
MFA students will be ready to break in and thrive in professional writers rooms as
well as succeed as content creators.
