The College of Motion Picture Arts offers a Master of Fine Arts screenwriting program with a foundation in motion picture production. Working with professional and experienced screenwriters from the start, you are challenged to master the art, craft and business of storytelling. You graduate prepared for success in the industry, and you become a part of our close-knit community of screenwriters who are proud to call the College their alma mater.

The program’s curriculum is based on the philosophy that a successful writer’s creative work is informed by production knowledge and experience. You engage in intensive production training in your first semester, when you direct and screen a short motion picture.

Spend a semester in London

What better way to learn the fundamentals of storytelling than by spending a semester in London? Your first spring semester is spent in the cultural center of theatre, where you immerse yourself in the West End experience, and complete a feature-length screenplay and a one-act play.
