TV Writing: A Word from Alan Kingsberg

Our goal is to put our graduates at the forefront of this rapidly growing industry and art form.

The opportunity to build a TV writing curriculum from the ground up is a chance to do things better – a chance to include only the best practices from the top universities where I've taught for the past 17 years.

This includes the in-depth small-workshop approach I've practiced at some of the country's top MFA programs since 1999 and the unique one-on-one mentoring approach that's been so successful at smaller liberal arts colleges. By adding in the practical wisdom of working showrunners, writers and producers, I believe we have created a unique and unparalleled TV writing curriculum at Stony Brook.


That's the philosophy behind Stony Brook's TV Writing curriculum. EXPLORE a variety of television writing forms including comedy, drama, dramedy, half-hour, one-hour, spec, pilot, network, cable and streaming.

Find your wheelhouse and your voice. Then CREATE original TV series concepts and pilot scripts.

MASTER your craft through collaborative workshops and intensive individual advisement and build the writing portfolio that can LAUNCH your career.
