In addition to the University Graduate School online application and our departmental admission requirements, applicants to the M.F.A. in Playwriting program need to complete additional criteria for admission.
Applicants to the M.F.A. in Playwriting should submit one complete play that best represents the applicant and demonstrates his or her strength as a candidate. A second full-length play may be requested if a candidate is the finalist for the Fellowship.
Please also submit a narrative bio and a short (2-3 pages) statement about objectives for the program and your reasons for applying.
A telephone interview is required. Finalists for the Fellowship may receive partial funding for an on-campus tour and interview. References will be requested for Fellowship finalists. Reference requirements consist of name, title, phone number and email address for three individuals that can speak to your work as a student and playwright. The three references can be the same individuals who wrote letters of recommendation to meet the University Graduate School Admissions Application requirement.
