Overview

Our master’s programs in Literature and in Creative Writing emphasize teaching and the role of scholarship and creative writing in the development of teachers. Professors and students alike benefit from and enjoy the individual instruction and mentoring our graduate program offers. The ratio of graduate students to graduate faculty is approximately 2:1, ideal for students who want help in developing their particular talents. Graduate students join faculty in mentoring and teaching undergraduate students and in conducting and presenting research. Our graduate students have gone on to teach in high schools and universities, work as writers and editors, and pursue further studies in Ph.D. programs across the country.
