MS in Television Boston University



Course info


The MS in Television curriculum is designed to give students the tools they need to seek professional careers in TV producing, management, writing, and programming. The program stresses that the producer is the creative driving force behind all television production, and that he or she must have a mastery of basic technical skills as well as a developed aesthetic sensibility. The producer must also be intellectually agile and have the ability and foresight to adapt to structural changes in a fast-moving industry. Management skills, essential in the successful completion of each production, are also essential to the economic welfare of the industry. Writing, the ability to tell a powerful story, remains the foundation for all TV and integrated media. Understanding new distribution technologies, including broadband and mobile devices, plays an increasing role as well.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to professionally pitch TV ideas and TV program concepts; Students will be able to relate national news, popular trends, and industry information to TV programming and network concepts; Students will be able to write professional (or semi-professional) TV projects and proposals; Students will have practical knowledge of the basics of physical production, including script breakdown, scheduling, and budgeting.

The curriculum includes courses in producing, management, writing for television series, pilots, reality shows, and documentaries, as well as electives in a wide range of television-related fields. In addition to electives, students have some choices in the courses they are required to take during their three semesters. These choices should reflect the direction they plan to follow when they leave the College and should support their ideas for their thesis projects. All students must give thought to these choices before registering for their first semester.

Students must complete a minimum of 48 credits to receive the degree.
