MFA in Playwriting – Tina Howe, Playwright in Residence
The Rita and Burton Goldberg MFA in Playwriting is a selective two year program with a strong emphasis on production. Under the guidance of award wining playwright Tina Howe, Playwright in Residence, you will study the craft of playwriting, theater history, dramatic literature and play analysis in Hunter’s Department of Theatre as well as be encouraged to take electives. You will learn how to collaborate with actors, directors and designers through workshops and rehearsals, culminating in a full production of your thesis play with critique sessions by industry professionals. You will also enjoy internships at such vital theaters around town as the Public, the Atlantic, the Lark, Primary Stages, Ensemble Studio Theater, and more. What better place to receive this hands-on training in the craft of playwriting than in New York City, theater capital of the world?
