Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing
The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is a 48-hour degree program for students who wish to become professional writers of playwriting, fiction, or poetry. The program requires students to take two sections of ENGL 6100: Literary Forms (one in and one out of genre), twelve hours of workshop in their genre, three to six hours of workshop out of their genre, three to six hours for thesis writing, and eighteen hours of elective credit, six of which must be from literature courses. Graduates from the MFA program pursue their writing careers in a variety of ways. Sometimes they decide to teach the craft of writing at the college or university level, and many of our students go on to doctoral study in prestigious programs such as those at the University of Georgia, the University of Iowa, the University of Houston, and Ohio University.
