Support the Master of Fine Arts in Writing program

Support the Master of Fine Arts in Writing program

The MFA in Writing is a two-year program of focused instruction for creative writers who are committed to a literary career. The program comprises four 16- week writing seminars and five 10-day, conference-style residency sessions. The seminars and residencies are integrated to help those who need to hone their writing and critical thinking in order to participate competitively in the wider domain of contemporary American letters. In a two-year course of study, the student earns 60 credit hours toward a Masters of Fine Arts degree in one of three genres: fiction, poetry, or nonfiction. An advanced writing certificate has been designed for nonfiction tracks.
