Creative Writing M.F.A.

The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program offers workshops with award-winning faculty writers in creative nonfiction and memoir, poetry and fiction; students may write their thesis in fiction, poetry or creative nonfiction. We also offer a scriptwriting workshop and students may take this course as an elective.

Unlike some MFA programs, we not only encourage students to work in other genres, we require our students to take at least one workshop in a genre other than their thesis genre. In addition to workshops, students take creative writing seminars in Poetry and Poetics or Prose Forms, pedagogy classes on the teaching of writing and courses on literature and special topics.

Our 42-hour program is designed to be a three-year program (although other options may be possible) and most students follow a plan that emphasizes course work in the first year and thesis work in the second and third years.

We welcome you to learn more about our admission application process and opportunities for graduate assistantships and other financial aid.
