IADT code: DL051
This MA gives writers the opportunity to explore, experiment and learn the craft of screenwriting, in conjunction with the development and writing of a full-length screenplay.
Our programme aims to inspire you to develop the art and craft of screenwriting and related ancillary skills to a high level. You will have already demonstrated an aptitude for writing (through your undergraduate studies or your portfolio work), and by the end of the programme you will have written a full-length feature script or a pilot episode of a television drama.
You will also acquire an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the craft of screenwriting, and will have gained a clear understanding of the stages of writing from idea to final draft. You will quickly appreciate the opportunities that exist in the film and television industries, as well as matters relating to copyright and contracts.
Full-time mode attendance: two days a week (total attendance aggregated over a week).
Part-time mode attendance: one day a week.
Application is directly to IADT. Application deadline is in early May annually. If places are available, a second application deadline is in mid-august annually.
