Scriptwriting - MA

Course Description

Utilising the expertise of our expanded Scriptwriting team the course builds on the skill base and reputation of our established undergraduate course and boasts improved facilities as a result of the move to our £15 Million Media Factory development with state-of-the-art facilities.

The course offers an in-depth knowledge of writing for radio, television, film and stage with emphasis on current industry practice and employability, equipping students with the most appropriate practice skills. Students will have the opportunity to participate in the writing of a full length feature film that is actually produced. Students will also be contenders for the new Matt Greenhalgh Award. The course is ideally located with access to local radio and the North West’s vibrant live grassroots theatre and new BBC production base.


The Scriptwriting Skills modules on the MA course are all freshly written and completely up-to-date. Critical theory will be embedded into a wider range of modules. This will further develop the critical underpinning of a student’s practical work and their dissertation. This will ensure critical theory gains greater relevance to the practical elements of the course. These skills will develop gradually throughout the course and will culminate with the triple module in semester three.

The curriculum themes of employability, practice based learning; entrepreneurial skills; developing industry contacts, and sustainability are embedded within the programme and are addressed through relevant topics in the new modules.
