Cross-training the thinking writer.

The Rita and Burton Goldberg Department of Dramatic Writing cross-trains students in all areas of dramatic writing across the mediums of Playwriting, Screenwriting and Episodic writing.

Both our BFA and MFA programs are small, intimate communities with the unique advantage of being part of a major university in the world's most vibrant city.

Our faculty are working professional writers who encourage our students to hone their unique voices while giving them an analytical, practical, ethical and diverse historical understanding of the craft of dramatic writing.

A graduate of the Dramatic Writing Department will be prepared to engage the world as an educated, critically thinking artist.

Writing is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
