Writing and Producing for TV

Our M.F.A. 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 will 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 will polish your projects and learn how to pitch them to industry professionals so you are fully prepared to launch your TV career.
