Built on the collaborative strength of two New York City theater organizations, the Fordham/Primary Stages MFA program in playwriting offers emerging writers the opportunity to develop and produce original work under the guidance of respected industry professionals.
Here are six things that make this program special:
1. Advantages of a professional environment
You’ll have the opportunity to work directly with industry professionals, like Primary Stages Founder Casey Childs.
2. Investment in students as artists and professionals
Our students leave our classes knowing not just how to write a great play, but also how to manage the business of making a living as a writer.
3. Individual attention from professors
With only two writers accepted each year, you’ll benefit from personal attention throughout the program.
4. Opportunities for artistic growth
Fordham’s theater program has a successful history of artist training.
5. Real world experience in New York City’s theater industry
Your two-year program culminates in a public production of a full-length play at an Off-Broadway theater venue.
6. Support of Artistic vision
Primary Stages has been supporting, nurturing, and sharing the art of new American playwriting for over 30 years.
