Diploma in Creative Writing for TV and New Media (DTVM - S41)



Writing stories that inspire. Have you ever dreamt of turning your love of words into a fulfilling career in the new media — such as scriptwriting, journalism, documentary producing, professional blogging or podcasting? DTVM helps you turn inspiration into success — dream it, write it, make it.

How do words combine with pictures, video and sound to make good stories? How will you mesmerise and challenge your audience? DTVM develops and hones your ability to find, shape and realise your stories, fine-tuning them into polished messages for print, radio, television and interactive media platforms.

Making inspiration work. At CASS, authentic learning means taking your story from your imagination to the drawing board and to the audience. Produce children's stories, news scripts, documentaries, TV dramas and sitcoms, content for mobile applications and more.

With the course, you will:
  • Be inspired. Find your muse in The Writers' Room, our unique space for dreaming and writing. Through our master classes, network with seasoned journalists, scriptwriters, filmmakers, animators, comic strip artists and other media professionals from Singapore and around the world.
  • Leave the classroom! Record your news, drama, comedy, reality show or documentary in a studio setting or the outdoors. Travel overseas to film a documentary as an assignment. Get a taste of university life and attend master classes at a local or foreign university! Intern with reputable media networks or related companies.

  • Get business savvy through our training in media entrepreneurship. Pitch your programmes to industry experts and, if selected, watch them come alive on TV.

The inclusion of a total journalism component in the diploma is critical, considering the current squeeze on talent in our newsrooms. I feel the diploma programme is therefore timely and relevant."
