Master of Fine Arts Program

The Department of English and Comparative Literature offers graduate study leading to the Master of Fine Arts in creative writing. The M.F.A. in creative writing is a professional program intended for full-time students who wish to receive a terminal degree in creative writing.

The M.F.A. is a 54-unit program which offers study in poetry or fiction with a balance between contrasting approaches: studio and academic, traditional and experimental, and commercial and aesthetic. The program has two stages – graduate seminars followed by intensive work with one or more professors in tutorials and manuscript preparation.
