The MA Screenwriting was launched at Edinburgh Napier University in 2006 and has adapted and developed since then to become one of the strongest screenwriting Masters courses on offer in the UK.
This course is industry recognised by ScreenSkills, the industry-led skills body for the UK's screen-based industries and carries the ScreenSkills Select endorsement which indicates courses best suited to prepare students for a career in the screen industries.
The course is studied at the Screen Academy Scotland, a ScreenSkills recognised Film Academy.
While the course is primarily for aspiring screenwriters, it is also aimed at those interested in script editing, script development and creative producing.
Teaching staff are working screenwriters and producers and there are regular visits from professional writers, producers, directors and those working in script editing and development.
Typical entry point to this course is in September. Please enquire for more information.
