Creative Writing M.F.A.
The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program at the University of Idaho is an intense, three-year course of study that focuses on teaching, learning and the craft of writing. It is the terminal degree for those wishing to teach creative writing at the college or university level; it is also among the credentials expected of those seeking employment in arts administration, editing, advertising, public relations and related fields.
The curriculum provides practical training in fiction, poetry and/or creative nonfiction, as well as the chance to work in editing and publishing. The program is small by design; graduate workshops generally have 10 to 15 students enrolled. Our faculty are practicing, publishing and award-winning writers. Teaching assistantships, as well as fellowships, are available to the most qualified applicants.
