MFA in Writing
The English Department offers a three-year Master of Fine Arts degree program that provides students with the time and opportunity to produce a book-length final manuscript. Our graduate writing faculty members have distinguished themselves nationally and internationally through numerous publications and awards. They include poets Toi Derricotte, Lynn Emanuel, and Dawn Lundy Martin; fiction writers Fiona Cheong, Chuck Kinder, and Irina Reyn; and creative nonfiction writer Jeanne Marie Laskas. Each year we also welcome a number of distinguished visiting faculty.
