The MA in Screenwriting offers an integrated programme in the history, theory and practice of screenwriting. It will develop practical screenwriting skills and techniques, with students developing outlines, treatments and scripts towards a portfolio of original projects. Projects may be for film or television and the programme will encourage students to write in different genres, and expect you to rewrite draft scripts with feedback and tutor support. One distinctive feature of the programme is the fast-track core module which will allow all students enrolling on the course, including graduates in other fields, to gain detailed knowledge of screenwriting theories, conventions and formats, and develop the ability to apply these to writing practice. Subsequent modules will deepen writing skills and knowledge of screenwriting with assignments of increasing length designed to meet industry requirements, such as feature film script and television series writing, and students will also study the discourse and practices of screenwriting.
