What will I learn?

The Dramatic Writing BFA program is a four-year program designed to give students a liberal arts based education with an emphasis on writing for theater, film and television.

The Dramatic Writing Department’s curriculum consists of writing workshops, text analysis classes, production/performance classes and pre-professional training classes to be taken as well as general education classes throughout the university. Over the course of four years, students will analyze the dramatic text as it has developed since the time of the ancient Greeks, learn basic production techniques, explore the world of performance, develop and refine their writing ability while studying a broad range of liberal arts classes outside the department.
