Creative Writing, M.F.A.

This fully-funded MFA program is dedicated entirely to prose. We teach a wide range of courses in fiction, nonfiction, and hybrid forms. We offer award-winning faculty and prepare graduates to release books with prominent commercial and small-press publishers.

Additional Information

M.F.A. students follow the guidelines for a Plan A thesis. Only those courses in which a grade of B or better has been earned may be applied to the graduate program of study. All courses must be taken for a grade unless offered for S/U only. No graduate credit is allowed for grades S and U.

The cumulative GPA must be at least 3.000 to receive a degree. Courses below 4000-level will not count toward the degree nor will they be figured in the GPA, although they will appear on the transcript.

A minimum of four Workshops (CW 5560) and/or Creative Writing Seminars (CW 5540) must be taken. These may be in any combination to reach the four-course total, typically for a total of 12-16 credit hours. We require a cross-genre component in that mix of courses.


Total Credits: 36 Hours (Minimum)

Total credit hours must be a minimum of 36.
