Is writing your passion? Do you have an enormous amount of stories to tell? Then this degree program is just the thing for you. We will help you to craft characters and compelling stories.

Screenwritting is a three-year follow-up Master's program taught in English for graduate students who already received a BA degree in Cinema or another field.

The students are selected for the program based on the evaluation of their talents and necessary skills level. The intentionally low number of students guarantees a personalized approach to every single student.

The core of the program is the intimate mentor-led workshop providing small groups of students (six or less) intensive hands-on and one-on-one guidance on how to transform a creative idea into a functional screenplay.

The workshop is complemented by further classes on screenwriting techniques and methods.

Students receive a number of compulsory and elective courses providing them with the necessary theoretical and practical tools associated with the work of the professional filmmaker.

Teachers and mentors in the program include full-time faculty from Department of Screenwriting and other Departments of FAMU, as well as other artists, academics and film professionals as part-time faculty.

The program is complemented with additional elective courses, workshops, and modules – short intensive courses taught by professional guest artists, theorists, and visiting professors.

The program is completed with Thesis, theoretical Final Exam, and Final Feature Screenplay.
