University Programs & Partnerships: University Courses

The Playwrights’ Center, in partnership with Augsburg University, is offering online, accredited playwriting courses taught by today’s leading writers in the field!

Through the University Courses program, students from all over the country can now enroll in semester-long online playwriting courses.

These courses operate like any other 4-credit course and are designed to be taken alongside other classes at a student’s school as part of a full load. (The cost of the course replaces the cost of one full-semester class at their school.)  Through our partnership with Augsburg University's Center for Global Education & Experience (CGEE), students will get college credit and be able to apply their financial aid to the cost of the course, just as they would at their own university. A passion for playwriting, an eagerness to learn with and from amazing writers all around the world, and a desire to tell stories on stage are all that’s required! 

These new courses are designed to supplement what schools already offer. They provide intimate creative and professional mentorship at a time when many are in need of extra support. And they bring together student writers in a vibrant learning community with others all around the country and beyond.
