Summary

MA Screenwriting is an industry-focused screenwriting course that develops writers and script editors for the film, television and radio industries. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant and Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL).

**What can you expect?**

MA Screenwriting introduces you to the foundations of contemporary scriptwriting practice in a theoretical context. You’ll develop research methodologies that will become the foundation for future practice and analysis. The course offers you the opportunity to study feature film, television and radio narrative, the development of a script from a short story and research, which lays the foundation for your major project. You will also complete a collaborative unit that reflects your specialist interests in scriptwriting and related topics, whilst engaging with the need to understand and communicate with the industry you wish to work in. In the last term of the course, you’ll undertake a major project that allows you to focus on a specialist area of interest that you identified during your previous study. You will write several drafts of an original screenplay for film or TV or a TV pilot episode(s) with format documents. In addition, you’ll engage in peer-to-peer review and the writing of reader reports.
