Creative Writing M.F.A.

The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program offers workshops with award-winning faculty in creative nonfiction and memoir, poetry, and fiction, as well as special-topics courses, such as journal design and editing.  Students may write their thesis in fiction, poetry or creative nonfiction.

Unlike some MFA programs, we not only encourage students to work in other genres; we require our students to complete 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.

The program consists of 42 credit hours of courses.  Most students follow a plan that emphasizes coursework in the first year, followed by a focus on their thesis 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.
