Master of Fine Arts Program in Narrative Media Writing Students in the University of Georgia's two-year Master of Fine Arts Program in Narrative Media Writing may choose to concentrate in one of two focused genres: Narrative Nonfiction with a journalistic foundation, or Screenwriting. Based at UGA's prestigious Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, this low-residency program allows students to complete most of the degree requirements off campus while developing their skills and talents under the guidance of experienced faculty writing mentors. Students begin each semester by visiting campus for an intensive 10-day residency, followed by a four-month online writing period, during which they work under the instruction and mentorship of a committed and diverse group of faculty and award-winning visiting writers. The end goal is a finished feature-length screenplay or a substantial nonfiction manuscript of publishable quality.
