The MFA in Creative Writing and Poetics is a two-year, 48-credit graduate degree.
Students typically enroll in 9 credit hours per semester and 12 credit hours in the
Summer Writing Program (over two summers).
The program offers an open-genre curriculum within a contemplative academic environment, providing MFA students maximum flexibility within the degree. Graduate students are encouraged to take classes across genres, enabling them to investigate a personal, intensely original writing process and style. We challenge the notion of safe or generic works and create a space for radical exploration and experimentation
