This Master of Fine Arts program is a studio/academic program in which students’ own writing and craft (in workshops and craft seminars) is enriched by the study of literature and the form and theory of fiction. The three-year program fosters close working relationships with our accomplished, award-winning faculty and a supportive environment in which to grow as a fiction writer and as a student of fiction.  In an environment supportive of aesthetic and pedagogical diversity, students who graduate from the program will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a broad awareness of the genre and the history of the narrative over time.
  • Demonstrate a broad awareness of the genre in the present cultural landscape.  
  • Complete a substantial manuscript (the MFA thesis): a novel, short stories, novellas, hybrid text, or combination of forms.
