Writing and Producing for TV

Our MFA program in Writing and Producing for Television trains students to become writer-producers—the showrunners and creative leaders behind today’s top TV programming. You’ll master story and character development, storytelling structure, and cinematic style while gaining an insider's understanding of the TV business and developing a diverse portfolio of long- and short-form teleplays. In the final year of the program, you’ll polish your projects and learn how to pitch them to industry pros so you’re fully prepared to launch your TV career.
