What you’ll gain

Our three-year MFA in Playwriting Program will actively engage you with playwriting workshops, classes and seminars, actors in the classroom, and theatrical productions on a yearly basis. As a graduate, you will join a distinguished group of alumni playwrights that includes Karen Zacarias, Lydia Diamond, Russell Lees, Ronan Noone, Melinda Lopez, Zayd Dohrn, Molly Smith Metzler, John Kuntz, and Joyce Van Dyke, among others.
