Which graduate program is right for you? 

  • The graduate certificate in writing for television and film is a 15-hour course of study designed to take your writing skills to the next level. It can be completed in one or two years, and most of the courses are offered online. 
  • The Master of Professional Studies- Producing and Screenwriting option includes the advanced writing curriculum of the screenwriting certificate and builds on it with skills in producing, budgeting and project management. In the MPS program, you'll have the opportunity for hands-on experiences, working on MJF's film productions. Many of the courses can be completed online. 
  • The programs can be completed concurrently, which means you'll graduate with both the master's degree and the graduate certificate in just two years.
