Program Overview

Degree Requirements

Students graduating with a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Creative Writing earn a minimum of 36 credit hours.  The MFA degree requires a minimum of 32 hours of coursework, 4 hours of thesis research credit, and a written thesis. Only those courses in which a B or better has been earned may be applied to the graduate program of study. All courses must be taken for a grade unless offered for S/U only. The cumulative GPA must be at least 3.0 to receive a degree. Courses below 4000 will not count toward the degree nor will they be figured in the GPA, although they will appear on the transcript.
