Arcadia University’s low-residency M.F.A. program in Creative Writing, the only one of its kind in the Philadelphia area, is distinctive in that it incorporates both a dynamic online environment and a study abroad experience. The Boston University Creative Writing Program, one of the oldest and most prestigious in the country, offers students the opportunity to complete the MFA degree in fiction or poetry in one year (two to three semesters) through a rigorous combination of creative writing workshops and literature courses.
Creative Writing, MFA The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is a selective three-year program that admits approximately five applicants in fiction and five in poetry each academic year. Many of our students work with Renata Tutko, our program manager, to find positions throughout the university, giving them increased and sometimes even full support.
The Creative Writing Program is a course of study with the flexibility for students to initiate a variety of literary lives through exposure to a range of aesthetics, a global literary orientation, course work in historical and contemporary literary forms, and interaction with visiting authors and scholars.
Boston University’s creative writing MFA is, as far as I know, the only 1-year program in the country. I’ve had varied reactions to the length of this program. Those who are not in the writing world generally think it’s a benefit to return to school for only 1 year.
