MFA Thesis

In each of the final two semesters in the MFA Program, students enroll in CW 699 for a total of six credits, culminating in a capstone MFA thesis of 48-64 pages of poetry, or 100-200 pages of fiction. The thesis is written under the supervision of a thesis advisor, read by a thesis committee of a least three members, and subject to a public thesis defense. The MFA thesis is the focus of each students three years of graduate study. It represents the best work the student has produced informed by the MFA workshops, by the study of literature, and by subjects relevant to the students project mentored by faculty, directed by an advisor, and nurtured by an engaged community of writers.
