Creative Writing Minor

Applying to M.F.A. Programs in Creative Writing

Individualized faculty mentoring is provided to students who are interested in applying to Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) programs in creative writing. Students attend M.F.A. programs in creative writing to work on book-length projects, to hone their skills in craft and theory, to learn more about how to have their work published, to sometimes prepare for additional graduate study, to gain experience in teaching and/or the publishing industry, and to be a part of a community of writers. The M.F.A. is a terminal degree in the field of creative writing that allows those who hold the degree to teach at the university level. Graduates of M.F.A. programs also have careers in independent and commercial publishing, literary arts administration, and other fields that emphasize the literary arts and creative expression.
