About the MGA
The current audiovisual media landscape highlights the need for professionals who know how to tell stories in images for both traditional screens and new media formats. The School of Communication at the University of Navarra launched the Master's Degree in Screenplays for Film and Television (MGA) as a response to this clear need.
The MGA is a postgraduate program that aims to train students to become screenwriters and audiovisual professionals. Through advanced, comprehensive academic and professional training, the MGA focuses on making students key players in the industry so they can contribute to the social good through their professional work. In order to achieve this, students undertake a training program that will help significantly improve their theoretical and practical skills, which will be strengthened by a solid education in the humanities that is essential for practicing the profession effectively.
Throughout the academic year, students will undertake 60 ECTS credits in writing workshops, lectures, analysis of audiovisual works and conferences with prominent visiting professors who are active in the profession. They will also create two works of fiction (one feature film and a TV series) and develop a portfolio of creative work. Towards the end of the program, students will undertake a four-week training module at companies in the industry.
The School of Communication at the University of Navarra was the first to offer Communication studies at university level in Spain. With 50 years of history, the School's launch of the MGA represents a new commitment focused on service to society and professional excellence.
