Applying to the BFA Playwriting program involves submitting all required application materials and completing an interview. All of your application materials must be received no later than
February 1 or two weeks prior to your interview date, whichever date is earlier.
Before you can register for your Playwriting interview, you will need to pay the interview fee and upload the following major-specific materials to your Blue Demon Domain:
Your resume can include both theatre experience and related non-theatre experience (extracurricular activities, employment, etc.)
The writing sample may be a play, scene, story, poems, or any other example of your creative writing ability. You are welcome to submit multiple shorter pieces or one longer piece. There is no specific number of pages we require.
You will interview one-on-one with a faculty member. We believe that during the interview, the questions you have for us are as important as the questions we have for you. There is no fixed format or schedule of questions for the interview, so you will be evaluated as an individual by an individual. The faculty member who conducts the interview will be interested in your theatre experiences, academic record, personal achievements, extracurricular activities and plans for your artistic future (especially as they relate to playwriting.) The best preparation for the interview is to be curious; come with plenty of questions about courses, instructors, student life and anything else you would like to discuss.
