Emerson’s Writing for Film and Television MFA professors guide you through the writing process from your initial story idea to the final draft of each script. Acting as mentors throughout your program, your professors will meet with you regularly to discuss your career goals, advise you as you create your professional writing portfolio, and help set you up for success after graduation.

Each semester you will work with a professional guest lecturer at an in-person Master Class. The rest of your course will be online, allowing you the flexibility to earn your MFA from anywhere.

Program Highlights Include:

  • Low-residency MFA program
  • Each semester begins with a six-day residency, alternating between our Boston and Los Angeles campuses, where students explore Master Classes, seminars, screenings, guest lectures, staged readings, pitch sessions, and more
  • Semesters are 100% online with asynchronous coursework (and some synchronous workshops) to fit your schedule
  • No GRE required to apply
  • 2-year long, full-time program
