MFA in Writing

The MFA in Writing is a three-year, full-time residency program, unique in its interdisciplinary focus. While writers apply and are admitted in a primary field of concentration—chosen from fiction, poetry, playwriting or screenwriting—they have the opportunity to develop work in a second field during their program of study.  Students are typically enrolled in three courses each fall and spring semester; there are no summer classes.  The 54- hour degree plan includes workshops and reading/studies courses in both chosen fields, flexible supporting coursework, and a thesis in the primary field of concentration.
