University Programs & Partnerships: University Courses

The Playwrights’ Center, in partnership with Augsburg University, is offering online, accredited playwriting and television-writing courses taught by today’s leading writers in the field for students from all over the country!

Each semester-long course is 4 credits and is designed to be taken alongside other courses at a student’s school: a one-class, online study-away experience. Our partnership with Augsburg University's Center for Global Education & Experience (CGEE) allows us to grant college credit and opens up avenues for financial aid and scholarships. A passion for playwriting, an eagerness to learn with and from amazing writers all around the country, and a desire to tell stories on stage are all that’s required. 

These courses are designed to supplement what schools already offer. They provide intimate creative and professional mentorship from writers working actively in the field. And they bring together student writers in a vibrant learning community with others all around the country and beyond.
