Learning Outcomes

Students in the MFA Program will graduate with improved competency in their writing, particularly in their chosen genre (fiction, nonfiction, or poetry).  In addition, they will receive a sophisticated introduction to information technology as well as the professional aspects of the writing life.

Students will be able to:

  • engage at a professional level in the writing of their chosen genre (fiction, nonfiction, or poetry).
  • articulate the correspondences between their own writing and the corpus of literature and thought which primarily informs their aesthetics.
  • use information technology with a high level of sophistication, either for the purpose of academic research or for the purpose of primary research that may inform a given piece of writing.
  • work effectively as professional writers: publish work in literary journals and magazines; solicit and procure literary agents; solicit and procure publishers for manuscripts or book projects; give public readings; apply for and receive funding for literary projects; exhibit a preparedness for finding employment in various professional fields, such as education, journalism, public relations, publishing, and technical writing.
