About the course

The MA Writing for Stage and Broadcast Media offers a vocational training in writing drama across a range of different media contexts.

Both the MA and MFA courses provide the opportunity for you to develop the core competencies and skills of the dramatist, to explore your ‘voice’, to develop your confidence in your own writing and to understand the different media contexts within which you might work as a professional scriptwriter.

Study the history of dramatic writing and explore its future
Work with actors and be taught by industry professionals

In the past, students have also had the opportunity to study optional units on writing within other contexts, for example, writing with, and for, communities (in collaboration with the MA Applied Theatre).

Key features of the course

Practice-based enquiry into techniques and processes for writing for stage and screen;
A series of writing projects engaging with different styles and media formats;
Research into dramatic writing techniques and issues of performance in relation to theatre, cinema, television, radio and other relevant contexts.

ASSESSMENT

You will be assessed through peer assessment, scriptwriting assignments, essays, presentations, critical reflection on your own writing and, for the MFA, the submission of a professional development portfolio.
