Course info

Summary

The MFA in Creative Writing is a small, intensive one-year program (two to three semesters). The goal of the program is to help each of our students become better writers of original prose and poetry and to produce readers, critics, poets, and writers of the highest quality. The program prepares writers to become better critics of their own work and others’ and to teach.

Course Requirements

The MFA is an eight-course, 32-credit degree, including four workshops, four graduate literature courses, and a world language requirement.

At least four of the courses taken must be workshops in fiction or poetry, depending on the genre in which the student is admitted. The four remaining courses are normally graduate-level literature courses, some of which may be completed during the BU summer session(s).

It is possible to take a course (or courses) in a subject or discipline other than literature, provided that these are demonstrably essential to the student’s creative work, and show a strong emphasis in reading literary, as distinct from purely scholarly or academic, texts.
