Postgraduate Program in Screenplay

The Postgraduate Program in Screenplay offers an advanced curriculum in creative writing, targeting professionals in the film, television and multimedia industries. Over two semesters, each student will be oriented to develop screenplay projects that meet professional quality standards.
