Applicants who deposit after a program reaches capacity may be placed on a waitlist and cannot be guaranteed a spot for Fall '22 semester.
The B.F.A. in screenwriting program emphasize a balance of hands-on work in the development of scripts along with the study and theory of storytelling for a wide platform of outlets. Students will explore and write short screenplays, feature screenplays, television scripts and more. Writers participate in workshop settings, providing and receiving feedback from peers and instructors. This degree requires all students to meet strict deadlines, communicate in class through critiques and discussions, and share artistic work in a public setting through readings, presentations and screenings.
The writer’s room is where screenwriting students can workshop their screenplays in a professional setting.
The screenwriting program provides opportunities for collaboration with other writers, filmmakers and animators. Writers will see their ideas brought to life on a variety of mediums and gain intimate knowledge of the industry and its structure. Writers will also have the opportunity to make films, and, by directing actors and composing shots, they can more fully realize the possibilities of visual storytelling.

"If you have even the slightest spark of curiosity to pursue a career in screenwriting, don’t get in your own way, go for it! The program is so welcoming of everybody no matter what walk of life you are from. We don’t see people as students and professors, just writers. It is a breeding ground for creativity and the honing of the craft with a philosophy that everyone should implore: there are no bad ideas."
