The program is unique globally for its multi-genre approach to writing instruction: students are required to work in multiple genres during the course of the degree.
As a fine arts program rather than an English program, students focus on the practice of writing rather than the study of literature.
Through intensive peer critique and craft discussion, faculty and students work together with the same goal: literary excellence.
The MFA granted to distance students is the same degree as granted to on-campus students, and the same criteria of excellence in multiple genres of study apply.
Creative Writers are at the heart of our cultural industries.
Poets, novelists, screenwriters, playwrights, graphic novelists, magazine writers: they entertain, inform and inspire.
