Hey, I’m in the screenwriting program at BU so if you have some questions I can do my best to answer!
I'm thinking of putting together an article on the site on something like "Film School in the time of COVID" to help current applicants and people who may be attending schools in the fall. I'd love to be able to interview you (or one of the site's writers will) about how the pandemic is currently affecting you at the school and what the school's plans are for the fall if any. Would this be something that you're interested in?

Thanks! I think it'd be a great help for the people on the site.
Hi, I have a few questions about BU's MFA in Screenwriting:
1. What is the typical class size?
2. Will you get to choose your concentration (TV vs. Feature film) at some point of the program, or do you have to study subjects on both and only choose concentration for your thesis at the end?
3. Is there any collaboration/co-production with students from other media/film majors? How frequent?
4. Things you like and dislike about the program?
Many thanks in advance.

Hi I have a question. I've never lived in the Eastern part of the U.S. before like NY and I was wondering what kind of route do you take on after graduating from MFA in NY. FYI I'm international student and am willing to attend MFA programs there. Do they apply for internships or production companies? I wonder what they do after graduation!

    Quality Facilities, Caring Professors
    Great school that prepares you for the New York film and television scene. The facilities are state of the art and the teachers are top notch.
