MFA in Writing & Poetics
The MFA in Writing & Poetics is a two-year, 49-credit graduate degree, which can also be taken part-time over three or four years. The program has a curriculum that balances writing workshops with literary studies. This reflects the program’s conviction that creative writing, reading, and critical analysis must be involved in a writer’s growth. Attendance at two Summer Writing Programs is required of all students for completion of the MFA degree. See the Summer Writing Program section for more information.
The MFA in Writing & Poetics offers courses and workshops in poetry and prose, and students write their MFA thesis in the genre of their choice.
