Master of Fine Arts

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 Diana Khoi Nguyen and Joy Priest; fiction writers Angie Cruz, Bill Lychack, and Irina Reyn; and nonfiction writers Erin Anderson, Jeanne Marie Laskas, and Michael Meyer. Each year we also welcome a number of distinguished visiting faculty.
